Ribbons and Bows: Dazzling Details!

Everyone knows that it’s the little things that can make an event special. What you might not know is that Birthday Direct is a great source for fabric ribbon, tulle, and pre-styled bows! Our Decorative Ribbon adds that little extra “something” to almost any celebration, and Birthday Direct has taken it a step further by hand-selecting specific designs to coordinate with our themes. No need to worry about finding ribbon that matches your party! You’ll see options in each of our categories.

So, what can you do with it? Here are a few great ideas!

  • Decorate a very special gift
  • Create hair bows for your guests
  • Tie it around plush animals
  • Dress up a bouquet of flowers
  • Add it to party crafts
  • Sculpt fun shapes, like flowers and animals
  • Make larger bows for wreaths and doors

Styling a ribbon may look tricky, but if I can do it, ANYONE can do it.
We’ll try an easy three-layer bow.

You will need:

you_will_need

  • Ribbon (I used 1.5 inch wide grosgrain)
  • Fabric glue or hot glue
  • Scissors

Step 1:  Cut a length of ribbon and fold it into a loop. This will be your bottom layer, and it’s the largest one. (I used a 14 inch long piece, so my bottom layer will be about 6.5 inches after folding and securing.) Overlap the ends slightly and secure with hot glue or fabric glue.

Step 2:  Repeat with a second shorter length of ribbon. This is the second layer. (I used a 10 inch long piece.) Glue the ends together, and glue this loop on top of the first, in the center. You should be able to see part of the bottom layer on both sides.

Step 3:  Repeat with a third shorter length. This is your top layer. (I used a 6 inch piece.) Glue this loop on top of the second loop, in the center.

Step 4:  Fold a narrow piece of ribbon around the center to hold the loops together. (I just used a 3.5 inch long strip of the same ribbon and folded it so that it was.5 inches wide.) Flip the entire bow over, and secure the strip on the backside with glue.

You’re done! Now you can fasten your bow to a package, glue a hair clip to the back, or glue it onto a headband. Go you!
