Imagine if all of our bows were exactly identical, what fun would that be?

My advice is use less ribbon, and turn it upside down and twist, don't try to evaluate it as you make it. As I made mine I would question each twist, when I let go and let the ribbon form as it needed to it worked better for me.

My vote is grab some ribbon and play, play, play, and once you get comfortable with the twist and turns of it, you have YOUR rose!
Agreed!! I think it looks great! When I first started these I was amazed at how easy they were! YOU are the one creating them, they SHOULD look like yours!
