get a long piece of ribbon, put the ends together and make a crease at wear the ribbon folds, that'll be your center point. Now get one end of the ribbon, and without it flipping over, bring the end to the center of the ribbon and lay it perpendicular to the direction of the ribbon. Also bring the other end of the ribbon to the center of the ribbon but from the other direction. Hold the ribbon together using a gator clip. Obtain a piece of string or plastic strip, tie the folded ribbon tightly together by making ties on both ends. You now have a boutique hair bow made from a ribbon.
