Step 1: You will need

Cut a long piece of ribbon that matches your wrapping paper. Snip off the end at an angle and tie it round the box. Trim off the end at an angle.
Step 3: Make loops
Take another piece of the same ribbon and loop it several times back and forth holding the loops in the centre.
Step 4: Attach to the box
Tie the ribbon to the box with curling ribbon in the centre of the loops. Trim off the excess ribbon at an angle. You could stop here if you like.
Step 5: Loop another ribbon
For a more flamboyant bow, add a different coloured ribbon. Cut of a piece at an angle and loop in the same way as before, holding the loops in the centre.
Step 6: Tie to the box
