DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY --- PURPOSE: To enable an individual with use of only one hand to form large bows for gift baskets. This simple jig acts as a second holding hand. Two one-inch dowels are placed about seven inches apart on a plastic platform laid on a sheet of Dycem to keep it from slipping and the jig and the pad are held in place with a one-hand clamp. A plastic spring clip is bonded to the base and rests against the right-hand pillar. This clip holds one end of the ribbon, which is the wire- edged type for stiffness. The ribbon (about 50 inches )is then wound around the pillars several times. A short length of pipe cleaner is twisted around the middle of the bow and the excess cut off. Each layer of bow can then be lifted off and shaped. TITLE: The Bow Maker. WEB SITE: Workshop Solutions at http://www.workshopsolutions.com/COMPLETE/bowmaker.htm.
