They are beautiful on corsages and in bridesmaids and the bridal bouquet. You can make a set of matching bows for a decoration for the doors of the church.

Things you need
- 4 m (4 yards) organza ribbon per bow
Cut a 25 to 35 cm (10 to 14 inch) piece of organza ribbon. Tie a single loose knot in the centre. Set aside.
Pick up the end of the organza ribbon. Measure 25 to 30 cm (10 to 12 inches) up from the end and pinch the ribbon between your thumb and forefinger.
Make a loop with your free hand about 10 to 15 cm (4 to 6 inches) wide. Pinch and hold between your thumb and forefinger.
Twist the ribbon at the pinched point and make a loop opposite the first loop. Pinch and hold.
Continue twisting and forming loops until you have a series of eight loops.
Pick up the knotted piece of organza ribbon. Drape it over the bow you are still holding in your hand. Arrange the knot at the centre of the bow.
Turn the bow over and pull the tails of the knotted piece up at each side.
Firmly tie the two tails to secure the centre of the bow. Double knot for added security.
Cut the four tails of the bow at a slant or in a V notch.
