Before we start, let’s gather the materials needed. You will need a gift, ribbon, and a pair of scissors. The ribbon can be any color or width, depending on your preference.
Step 1: Measure the Ribbon
First, take the ribbon and wrap it around your gift. Make sure to leave enough ribbon to tie a bow. How much ribbon you need will depend on the size of your gift.
Step 2: Tie a Knot
Next, take the two ends of the ribbon and tie a knot on the top of the gift. This will keep the ribbon in place while you tie the bow.
Step 3: Make a Loop
Take one end of the ribbon and make a loop. Hold the loop between your thumb and forefinger.
Step 4: Make Another Loop
Make another loop with the other end of the ribbon. Hold this loop on top of the first loop.
Step 5: Cross the Loops
Cross the loop on top over the loop on the bottom.
Step 6: Tuck Through the Hole
Take the top loop and tuck it through the hole that has been created by the two loops.
Step 7: Tighten the Bow
Gently pull the loops to tighten the bow. Adjust the loops to make them even.
Step 8: Cut the Ends
Using your scissors, cut the ends of the ribbon at an angle. This will prevent the ribbon from fraying.
