How to make a bow:
Here's a little tutorial on how to make your own bows. It's very simple, you just need a good glue or tape if you prefer that.
My best tip ever is to only buy white ribbons and then colour them with your promarkers or copics. That way you will not only save money, but also always have the right shade of ribbon. Just be careful because you usually need to use a lighter shade on the ribbon than what you've used to colour your image. You can also use the backside of the ribbon that tend to be a bit lighter. If you are talented you can even doodle on it to make it more personal.
Here's how I made the basic bow. You can mix colours, widths and materials as seen on the examples at the end.
Take two pieces of ribbon, the desired size of the bow twice as long and a smaller piece 3 times as the ribbon width.(You will understand it better further down)
Then take the smaller piece and fold it around the middle. Don't glue on the front, only the edges in the back.
Here are a couple of cards where I've used this technique:
