The first step is to cut a piece of the ribbon 7" to 8" long. Fold in half. I like to add a dab of hot glue to keep my ribbon in place. Once glue is dry, set aside ribbon.

This bow has four loops. One of the key ingredients in having a gorgeous bow, is keeping your loops all the same size. Your first loop is your pattern.

Make your second loop on the opposite side, and make sure it is the same size as your first loop.
