How To Make A Large Bow With Ribbon

Just face it… not every gift you give someone fits perfectly into a box that can be easily wrapped.  Sometimes you have to get creative and come up with an alternative to cardboard boxes and wrapping paper.  I recently purchased a gift for my brother and had to do just that… come up with a creative alternative.  I decided to wrap his small gifts and put them inside his large gift and simply make a bow to go on top. With that said, here is my tutorial on how to make a large bow with ribbon.
Note these measurements are for a bow approximately one foot in diameter.
