  • 5/8 inch Black Grosgrain for knot
  • glue gun, scissors, lighter, needle + thread
  • wrapped alligator clip

Fold your 16 inch strip 2 inches down from the ends to create a crease. Fold 2 more times, each time at the center.

Use your creases to make your Boutique Bow folds! Match crease-to-crease to keep your loops even.

b

Finish your last fold and stitch through the center, place 3 evenly-spaced stitches through center – start by going IN through the front!

c

Scrunch to make your creases! Then wrap your knot and tie-off on the back. You watch this step right here!

Bachelorette Bow Tutorial

AKA a Cheerbow! Make a quick and pretty one with a ziptie and some 3 inch grosgrain – so much easier than you’d think! To get really great ones? Just keep practicin’! You can fold and re-fold a Cheerbow for a long time until you get it just right and get your workflow down! We like this idea for cute Bachelorette Party Accessories you can do yourself (Just wait, those pics are gonna be so cute!)

Mini Stacked Bow Clip!

This Mini Stacked Bow is fluffy and adorable like its bigger sister – the Stacked Bow – but a little more manageable for little ones! Combine your Boutique Bow + Surround-a-bow + Covered Alligator clip (or Foldover Elastic Headband!) skills and get this adorable baby bow.

You’ll need the following:

  • 18 inches of 7/8 ribbon
  • 18-22 inches of 3/8 ribbon (excess of Surround-a-Bow used for center!)
  • 7 inches of 3/8 ribbon for clip
  • glue gun, scissors, needle + thread, heat-sealing, alligator clip.

Surround-a-Bow Video Tutorial!

This shamrock-shaped layering-bow adds beautiful layers to your Boutique Bows and Twisted Boutique Bows! Use layers of 3/8ths ribbon to add color and beautiful details to your Boutique Bows and Stacked Bows. Super easy and SUPER customizable, we love this bow-upgrade! You’ll need about 25 inches of 3/8 ribbon for a 4inch bow. Pro Tip: keep your ribbon on-spool while you place your Surround-a-Bow to eliminate wasted ribbon!
