Simply take a piece of ribbon and fold it close to the end, making a loop. Where your fingers are holding them together, place a drop of glue, and continue to hold. Do the same for the other side, using a clothes pin to keep everything in place. Cut off any access or simply make the ends even. With another small piece of ribbon (doesn’t have to be matching), you can do one of two things. You can either wrap that piece around the middle of the bow ,and glue it in the back where they meet, cutting off any access when it’s dry. Or you can make a knot with a small piece of ribbon (not too tight, it looks better loose), put a drop of glue in the center of the bow, placing the knot directly on top of the glue, then wrap the access around the back, gluing it in place and cutting off the access when it’s dry. The easiest is probably just placing a button or small flower in the center of the bow and calling it a day. It’s really all up to you!
