The ribbon-saver! Save all the short lengths for this easy, attractive pinwheel bow. Cut ribbon into strips 4 inches to 6 inches long, and tie together with spool wire. Use several different colors for one bow; or combine wide and narrow ribbons in contrasting colors for another.
For a rosette bow, use the same beginning technique as in the first basic one, making about 3 loops on each side. For variations: try placing contrasting colors one over the other; or use one color for half the loops, cut the ribbon off, and join in a second color to complete.
