How to Make a Brad Bow

How To - Make a Rhinestone Brad Bow

"I have had so many requests for a Tutorial on how I make my Rhinestone Brad Bows….so here you go……

First you need some of our wonderful Satin Ribbon from Stampin’ Up! - I find that works best, and a Rhinestone Brad.

Open the Rhinestone Brad fully and place Rhinestone face down so that it is ready for your ribbon.
Start to make your first loop as seen below.
Loop back and forth like Ribbon Candy

One more time so you have four loops…then cut with your Ribbon Scissors.

Here is a side view

Flip the ribbon over as the smaller loops will go face down into the brad and pinch together in the center as shown below.

Hold together (pinched) and lay it into the open brad.

Close the top prong of the brad down over the center of the ribbon and………

close the bottom prong up to complete and press firmly down to secure.
Flip over and
Voila! Instant Ribbon Bow!
Of course you will want to fluff up your ribbon a bit, but that’s it."
 This is a beautiful way to make a bow and oh, so easy too!
use Mini Glue Dots to attach your bow to your projects.
