How to make a ribbon loop
Like figure-of-8 bows, ribbon loops are used to accent and soften your bouquet. They are quite useful in separating flowers- if you are only using
one color of flower in your bouquet, you can put a ribbon loop between the roses to break up the color.
You will need:
- 7 Pieces of ribbon, about 5 inches in length
- 7 Thin wires
- Stem tape
Step 1: Cut the ribbon.
Take the ribbon, and cut it into 9 pieces, each about 5 inches in length
Step 2: Loop the ribbon
Take a piece of ribbon and squeeze the cut ends together, so that it forms a loop.
Step 3: Wrapping the wire
Wrap wire around the end of the ribbon that is squeezed together
Step 4: Taping
Tape the wire.
There you have it! Very easy, I think you'll agree.
Ribbon loops are great for softening a bouquet, as you can see from the photographs below...
