wrap ribbons around the dowel and hold ends together with wooden clothes pins (wooden is a MUST as you will be putting these in the oven and we don't want a fire)
put all your rods of ribbon onto a metal cookie sheet. i put foil on my sheet because i also use it for food and didn't want toe food smells to get on the ribbon, or the ribbons to get dirty. preheat oven at a low setting, around 225-250 degrees and put cookie sheet in oven for 25-30 minutes
take off clothes pins and slowly unwind the ribbon from the dowel rod
you'll have a bunch of these. how fun!
cut the ribbons to the size you want the finished product to be (tip, using clear nail polish on the ends will keep ribbons from fraying)
bunch the ribbons however you want the bow to look and secure using thread or fishing line, tie up, and add the clip of your choice
