Two-Tone Ribbon Bow - finished pale yellow and orange bowYou 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
Two-Tone Ribbon Bow - supplies


  1. Wrap ribbon around your card several times. I went around 6 times.
  2. Two-Tone Ribbon Bow - wrapping ribbon around the card six times
  3. Cut the ribbon on both sides of the edge of the card.
  4. Two-Tone Ribbon Bow - cut ribbon on both edges
  5. Now you have 12 strips of ribbon, all the same size.
  6. Two-Tone Ribbon Bow - twelve strips of ribbon in first color
  7. Repeat with the other colour ribbon.
  8. Two-Tone Ribbon Bow - repeat with the second color

  9. 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.
  10. Two-Tone Ribbon Bow - glueing strips in shape
  11. Repeat with all of the strips.
  12. Two-Tone Ribbon Bow - repeat for all of the strips
  13. Glue several ribbon loops together at the corners, going around in a circle.
  14. Two-Tone Ribbon Bow - start glueing the ribbon loops together at the corners in a circle
  15. Now glue in a smaller ring of ribbons inside using the other colour.
  16. Two-Tone Ribbon Bow -glue a smaller ring of the other color inside the first circle

  17. Repeat, alternating colours and using smaller rings.
  18. Two-Tone Ribbon Bow - continue alternating colors and making smaller circles
