Step 1: Cut Out Rectangle
1. Cut out rectangle in material you wish to make bow out of.
Step 2: Cut Off End
2. Cut off a small piece from side of the short ends of the rectangle. This piece will be the center of the bow later.
Step 3: Draw Center Line
3. Flip so you are looking at back side of fabric and draw a center line.
Step 4: Glue
Add glue to center line and short edges of rectangle and strip you cut off.
Step 5: Fold
Fold glued edges into drawn center line.

Wrap small strip of material glue side down to secure pinched bow in place. Trim wrap material as needed.
Step 8: Add Clip
Add clip or pin if desired.
