Happy Monday, Y'all!
I hope you all had a Fantabulous Mother's Day!

Today, I am posting a quick reference tutorial for you to create a
5 layer bow like the one I created with this month's 
Here is the bow that I created:
Here are your supplies that you will need:
glue gun
fabric glue
cotton thread
scissors of course
lighter to heat seal your ribbons

Below are the steps in sequence.
Here is a link to my other tutorials if you would like
other reference points, pictures, or explanations.

How, Once I get the complete bow assembled, I do use fabric stiffener.
I saturate the entire bow, then I pull and tug and shape the ribbons to be exactly where I want them. 

My next step...
Blow dryer!  I use my hair dryer to dry the stiffener and keep the ribbons in place.

Here is the bow in use:

I do love creating bows with the monthly ribbon club assortments.
Bonnie puts together the MOST GORGEOUS arrangements!
