Does anyone have a suggestion on how I can create a 4" damask bow? The customer wants 2 bows, white, with damask. I am baffled on what to do......please....somebody help!!!

You can buy edible image damask wraps, and damask chocolate transfers. I'd use one of those for sure.
ETA: I mean apply your edible image to your gum paste and then form your bow, then let dry. If you can't find it premade by Lucks or someone, get a pattern printed onto a blank sheet at a cake shop/custom printing place.
Thank you for all the suggestions. I need to work on it this week for next weekend. I never used edible chocolate Transfers, what exactly are they? As far as the transfer sheet, how would I make it stick to the gumpaste/fondant? In the past I have used just a minimal amount of buttercream but I am afraid it might crack when dry. I am going to do a trial today.
Right this very minute as a matter of fact, I am making sugar sheet bows. You cut two pieces and stick them together back to back (so the design is seen on the inside loops), and pinch them together in the middle like any other bow of fondant/gumpaste.
And they are as light as a feather, might I add. I would show you but it's for a project for CC and ain't supposed to be shared yet. ;)
Really? I just played around with sugar sheet today but it cracked. Doesn't the air work fast to dry it out? Also, do you use water or buttercream? darn, I wish I could see what you are talking about. I brought the sugar sheets home with me to work on the bows for next weekend. I will see if I could work with it. thank you so much for your input.
