You can easily make your own two-tone bow out of pieces of ribbon. I like this one because it's glittery, fluffy, and super easy to put together.

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 1 bow


  • ribbon in 2 colours
  • 1 credit card or playing card
  • scissors
  • hot glue gun with glue


  1. Wrap ribbon around your card several times. I went around 6 times.

  3. Cut the ribbon on both sides of the edge of the card.
  4. Now you have 12 strips of ribbon, all the same size.
  5. Repeat with the other colour ribbon.
  6. Place a tiny dot of hot glue on the top right of a piece of ribbon, then fold the other end back and around and secure on top of the glue.

  8. Repeat with all of the strips.
  9. Glue several ribbon loops together at the corners, going around in a circle.
  10. Now glue in a smaller ring of ribbons inside using the other colour.
  11. Repeat, alternating colours and using smaller rings.
