This beautiful window treatment was created by modifying the Abigail Valance Pattern.  Instead of a plain band across the top, we made a pleated band and formed the "bow ties" using our tack gun and adding a small button.  This technique was loosely based on our instructions for Making Bow Tie Trim.  We lengthened the valance to make it appear more like a shade and stapled the valance on a board for installation.
