Donna: maybe this will help
Here is my step by step video on how to make a bow...let me know if you have any questions: https://www.facebook.com/celebratedecorate/videos/1572929192765752/
Start with lots of ribbon.
The outcome of your attempts to make a large bow will depend considerably on what type of ribbon you choose to use. The thicker the fabric, and the heavier the edge wiring, the more the bow will hold its shape after being tied. Cheaper quality ribbon tends to be thinner with wire that cracks easily.
A big bolt of ribbon and I find wired ribbon helpful to make a beautiful 3d bow.
Amazing how simple and beautiful this is:
