Before you are ready to make your cute creases use an alligtor clip (double prong) in the middle to hold it in place. Use a needle and thread and poke a hole in the middle of the bow. Bring the needle around the top and through the alligator clip and pull to make the crease! I poke my needle through once or twice again and tie! So much easier and now I can make them pretty fast...
i had never thought of that....what a marvelous idea!!
