In order to decorate your presents during the holiday season, this quick tutorial will show you how to make a beautiful gift bow. Using a somewhat thick ribbon, determine the size of your bow and wind it around itself about 8-12 times, the more winds, the thicker your bow will be. Squeeze the loops of the ribbon together, making the ends overlap on the inside and fold it over. Then make two cuts on a diagonal through the center, making sure that you do not cut through. Unfold the loop and tie a pipe cleaner around the indent in the ribbons. Take each loop out individual and twist them, forming the bow shape. Using these quick steps, you will be able to quickly and efficiently make a beautiful bow that you can use to decorate any present.
