The Bowdabra (pronounced like “abracadabra”) is an easy-to-use crafting tool people use to make professional-looking, hand-tied bows at home. Just about any type of material can be used in a Bowdabra to create beautiful bows for gifts, baskets, home décor, bridal decorations, hair accessories, and more.
The Bowdabra’s patented design makes it simple to create medium to large bows. The process begins by inserting a piece of ribbon wire into the Bowdabra. Then, material is either scrunched or folded on top of the wire to achieve the bow size and fullness desired. Once the material is in, the Bowdabra Wand is used to compact the material onto the ribbon wire. The wire is then tied, and the bow can be removed from the Bowdabra. Once removed, the bow can be fluffed, arranged, and retied to the maker’s liking.
Bowdabras can be found in retail stores like ACMoore, Michael’s, Hancock Fabrics, and Garden Ridge. They are also available online at www.ribbonsandthingsstore.com, and www.consumercrafts.com. Many owner-operated craft shops stock Bowdabra as well. Check with your local craft supply store.
