How to make a ribbon loop

The final 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:


Step 1: Cut the ribbon.

Take the ribbon, and cut it into 9 pieces, each about 5 inches in length
