Classic Gift Bow

Probably the easiest to tie bow is this classic, go-to look. It’s the same type of bow we all know from when we learned how to tie our shoes as kids. Start by taking the length of desired ribbon and create two loops. Most likely you will make this bow with the same ribbon you wrap around the present or gift box. Second, cross the loops, one in front and one behind. Bring one of the loops through the hole that has been created (almost a third loop, at the bottom). Pull both sides to form the bow.

Classic Pom-Pom Gift Bow

Pom-pom bows are the fullest type of gift bows and are typically used for larger gifts. To make this bow, you will need one very long piece of ribbon. Two colored (each side is a different shade) or printed ribbon is perfect to use for this type of bow. Also, the longer the piece of ribbon, the fuller and bigger the bow will be. Start by folding the ribbon in half to find the middle of the ribbon. Once you have the middle, twist the ribbon once and create a loop on one side.

Do this for both sides until you have the same number of loops on each side with some ribbon remaining for the tails. Once you reach this step, take a smaller length of the same ribbon and tie it around the center of the bow (where you were twisting the loops) to secure the whole thing. Once it is secure, make sure the tails are the same length and then gently pull the loops apart to make the pom-pom.

Hand-Made Cards

From a woven look to embellishments, ribbons are perfect for cards. Add his favorite color or the classic blue to your message to your dad. He’s sure to love it! And, when you add personalized ribbon to a card as an embellishment, it creates a 3D effect and makes everything stand out.

Show your dad how much you care by mixing in ribbons on your homemade greeting card. Not only have you now created your own personalized card unique to your father, but you should still have plenty of the personalized ribbons to wrap any presents that coordinate with the card!
