Have a good selection of ribbons: The key to making a bow is to have a nice set of ribbons. If you are just learning how to tie a bow, then it is better to go with ribbons that are made of a fabric that is slightly stiff so that the bow that you tie stays the way you want it to look. Start with cotton if that makes you feel more comfortable.
Keep a nice pair of scissors with you: A nice sharp pair of scissors is essential for any such project not only to cut the scissors to the right length but also to ensure that once you are done tying the bow, you can make the ends that dangle look fancier. You can cut a simple triangle to make the ends look pointy and make the bow look even better.
The actual process: Take the ribbon that you intend to make the bow out of and fold in half and then for each half, fold the ribbon again into half. Which is to say that you have two loops of ribbon in hand. Then hold the loops in hand and place it crisscross on top of each other. This will ensure that you check that the ends are correctly matched in length and the size of the loops to form the bow are equal. Once you have loops on top of each other, you will see a circle forming below them. Twist one of the loops over the other and bring it through the circle that is formed. Pull the loops tight to make a nice neat loop while ensuring that the loops are equal. Ensure that the tabs hanging are also equal. You can cut them in fancy ways to make it look better.
