How to Make Floral-Ribbon Bows
Working from the spool, measure out some ribbon (this becomes a tail on the finished bow) and hold the ribbon color-side up. Twist the ribbon once, so that the other side shows. Hold the twist with your thumb and fingers.
The tail can be as long or as short as you wish. You'll be holding all the completed loops in one hand as the other hand makes loops and twists.
