Learn how to make a boutique style bow: Use 23 inches a ribbon to make a 4 inch bow. First, trim and heat seal the edges. Wrap it around your fingers and stretch it so the ends are not overlapping the bottom. Make sure the end is on the bottom and stick a pin through the center. Flip it over so the needle is sticking straight up and take the end and the bottom of the two layers and twist into an "X" shape. Adjust the loops to the desired position. Use a needle and thread to complete the bow. Stick it in one side and weave it in and out. Remove the stick pin. Pull the needle and thread the rest of the way through. Tighten up the center and wrap the thread around the bow. Tie off the thread and cut off the excess string to complete the boutique style bow.
