This post is about how to choose ribbons a buffalo check bow for Christmas.
Do you have trouble choosing ribbon styles that coordinate with each other? Well, here's a solution! The above bow was made with an assortment of 2.5" and 1.5" ribbons for a buffalo check bow. We will list ribbons that can be used to make a similar bow as above.
We have listed some ribbons to make the same or similar buffalo check bow featured above.
The ribbons listed are not all the exact same ribbons as shown in the buffalo check bow, but are close enough to give the same overall look. Bow making doesn't have to be hard, but it can be difficult to put ribbons together that compliment and contrast. For instance, there was a time that you would not see stripes and polka dots together in a project. Well, no more! There are very few rules when it comes to ribbon selection.
You can always use a color wheel if you're not sure what colors compliment each other. The use of a color wheel is another whole post that needs to be written.))) You might be surprised to see what complimentary color are for a ribbon you've picked out.
