1. Weave your ribbon

Using the length of ribbon you want for your bow, and the tail of the bow, use your hand to weave the ribbon. 

Pass the ribbon over your first 2 fingers, under your third, and over your pinky finger.

Now release your first finger, moving it to the top of the ribbon.

Wrap the ribbon over your first finger and under your second finger.

And now, bring the ribbon back over your second finger, and under your first finger.

Repeat that one more time, going over your first finger and wrapping around your second.

Instead of going back under your first finger, this time, bring the down, over the criss-crossed ribbon, between your first and second fingers.

Weaving ribbon

Push the ribbon under the crisscrossing, between your fingers, so it comes up at the front of your hand.

Bring the ribbon over the criss-crossing to the top of your hand.

On the underside of your ribbon bow, pass the ribbon through the loop that has been created, making a knot.
