Miniature Bows!

I've definitely been on a crafting kick lately!  I saw this, tried it and just had to share! Today I'm going to show you how to make miniature bows!  I loved this craft!  It's so quick, simple and cheap to make and has so many uses!

Here's how you make them:

All you need it two types of thin ribbon, a fork and some scissors!  

Cut your main ribbon about 9 inches to a foot long and weave it onto your fork like shown.

Then you weave the ribbon back the other direction. 

Keep weaving your ribbon onto the fork until you end up with something that looks like this.

Next, cut a piece of your other ribbon a few inches long and weave it through the middle of your fork under your main ribbon.

Then tie it off with a double knot.  
*You can add a dab of super glue over the knot if your ribbon is slippery to help secure it.

Then you simply trim the edges and slide your miniature bow off the fork.

 And that's it!!! Easy enough right?!
If you want to get crazy, try doubling up your ribbons to add more layers!

I loved this craft.  There is so much you can do with the mini bows!  Use them on small gifts, make barrettes for little girls, use them to decorate a picture frame...  What are you going to use your bows for?
