<p>Thank you!</p><p>I have been trying to make this type of bow for years with no luck. Thank you for sharing.</p>

<p>I used your tutorial to make a bow for a door wreath I was working on. It turned out beautifully! Thank you so much!</p>
It is beautiful! Thanks for sharing.
<p>This looks much easier than I thought it was going to be. They will look great on the wreaths I want to make for Christmas presents. I'm just wondering about how many yards of ribbon will you need to make the entire bow? At the beginning you say cut 3 yards. Is that 3 yards for the whole bow? Thank you</p>
The bow I made in the Instructable uses 3 yards, total. If you want it to be fuller (more loops), add another yard or too. Thanks for asking.
<p>Excellent directions. Made a bow for the top of my Christmas tree!!</p>
Beautiful!!! Thanks for sharing.
<p>Thank you so much! We are getting ready for Advent in my parish. Your instructable was very clear and adaptable for the style of bow I wanted to make I just used less layers. Your way is much easier than the old way I was doing it, and the results are much nicer. Thanks again!</p>
I've never been able to make these bows, and I've read tons of tutorials. You explained this subject so well- thanks!
