How adorable is this ribbon bow? Such a sweet accessory as we head into summery days!


Alternatively, you could sew a button in the middle to make this accessory even cuter (if it were possible!)


Or you could use the folder ribbon strips to create a traditional bow and secure it by wrapping a piece of ribbon in the middle, how pretty!
