Picture of How to Tie a Florist Bow
Many years ago, I paid good money to learn how to make these bows.  At some points in my life, I was paid good money to make these bows.  Now I will share how to make them and some of the secrets that make it work great.

Step 1:

Picture of
Supplies:  Ribbon, the wider it is the bigger the bow.  (Wired ribbon works the best, soft ribbon will not stay where you put it.)
                 Florist wire
                 scissors (do not cut wired ribbon with fabric scissors, it will put nicks in them and then they won't cut fabric very well.)
                 wire cutters (to cut the wire)
