Hi I'm Karen Rodowicz owner of JK Flowers. I'm here to show you how to arrange flowers and ribbons. Some key way to add a little accent to your flower arrangement is add some ribbon bows to them. To do that, you pick the ribbon that best matches your arrangement or you want to work with. You then take the ribbon, you fold it in half and make a loop. At that point you're going to scrunch up the bottom and twist it. You're going to have a stake with some floral wire on it which you can get at your local craft store. And you're going to wrap that around the bottom of your loop to hold it in place. At that point you now can stick it in the Styrofoam of your arrangement. Make a couple of these loops the same way as you started, you add another one there and you can go on and on and you can fill your arrangement with as many ribbons as you like. I hope this was helpful, Karen Rodowicz, JK Flowers.
