Corkscrew Bows

I love these!

And they are simple if you want to make them.
Take whatever ribbons you want to use and wrap them around a dowel
(as big or little as you'd like your screws to be)

Then spray them with some liquid starch

and bake them on 200 degrees or 250 degrees for about 20 minutes. 
(I've tried a little of everything and you can't mess it up.)

Take them out and let them cool, then remove the dowel 
then cut them into strips the length that you'd like
(I'd average 4 to 5 inches)

Grab some wire and wrap them tightly in the center.
Glue your ribbon to the clip and glue your bow to the ribbon. 
So CUTE!!!

they are very cute, a tip, the ribbon stays curly without corna strach if it is 100% polyester
