Curling Ribbon

I had someone ask me the other day how to make the curled ribbon bows. So, here you go. I have yet to take a picture of the finished project, because I haven't finished them yet. But here are the pictures of the hard part (and it is very simple).
First, you need to get some 1/4 inch dowels and some wooden close pins. I purchased mine at home depot, and then cut them to the length of a cookie sheet.
 Then, you take your ribbon (you can use gross grain, or other), and loop it around the end like the picture.
 Secure it with a clothespin, and then start wrapping the ribbon around the dowel.
 When you reach the bottom, secure with another clothespin.
 Place dowels on a cookie sheet, and then put in a 275 degree preheated oven for 20-25 minutes.
 Remove ribbons from dowels after cool, and cut to desired length. Then, place 6-12 ribbons together (depending on how full you want your clip) and tie or sew soem thread around the middle to hold together. Place on a clip, and you have yourself a some fun hair accessories, You can do all one color, or mix and match. Just be creative!
