My sister and I were walking around Hobby Lobby the other day and we were in the gift bag section when I saw some ribbon bows that I thought we could totally make cheaper and better than what they looked like. So we walked over to the fabric section to look at ribbon and I got to work.
We started out cutting ribbon strips to the desired size. Depending on how puffy you want them depends on how many you cut. I cut 24 pieces of ribbon.
Then start layering your ribbons. Lay them curl side up and curl side down.
Once they are all placed I picked it up and got it to crimp the way I wanted and then added a twist tie to hold it in place while I tied and elastic around it.
I clipped the ends of the elastic and then glued a clip on and you are finished. Super easy and you can get several bows out of one thing of ribbon. Here are some different styles we came up with:
