Then the longer end of the ribbon was passed through the small gap between the middle of the two fingers and wrapped around itself.

After gently pulling the ribbon down to tighten the center, she slid it off the fingers that formed the sides of the bow.

The second strand was then pulled down to meet the first strand and the perfect little bow was formed.
