Putting it all together....

Finally, we have all the parts we need to put our bows together! The bow, the covered clip, and the knot. So, let's get going!

STEP 1: Get your ribbon covered clip and add a line of hot melt glue to the top of it.

STEP 2: Take your folded bow and press it firmly to the glue. I usually count to 10 so I know that the glue has cooled enough.

The back should look something like this.

STEP 3: Take the knot you made and add a dot of glue to the back side.

STEP 4: Press the knot firmly to the center of the bow and allow glue to cool.

STEP 5: Line one of the tails of the knot with glue.

STEP 6: Open the clip with one hand, and with the other press the tail firmly down on the underside that is covered in ribbon.

STEP 7: Repeat Steps 5 & 6.

And you're done!

Coming soon, korker ribbon instuctions!

Thank You Ashby! I am practicing. I still cannot get the last step right when wrapping. Practice will hopefully make perfect! Although I could never do them as perfectly as you!

You are so darling. I love the step by step instructions. I am still not nearly as good as you are, but I'm working on it. I'm very grateful for my private lesson!
