The physical of size of the bow maker is 3 1/2″ x 5″ with 8 holes for making various sizes of bows. The holes are spaced on 1/2″ centers, with the maximum bow size at 4″. Any width of ribbon can be used. If you are tired of trying to make little bows in the same size, this will take the frustration out of it for you. For storage, the pegs insert into the base. They are magnetized, so they will not fall out. There is also a non-skid backing on the base. The bow maker will hang from a peg board with the eye hook mounted in the end when not in use.
