I find that this helps keep the bows from getting to tall and its much faster than stitching and it keeps the spikes flat - Win Win Win for me!

I hope that makes since!

If you have ?s PM me
Do you have any pics of the process?? Sounds like this would reall help with the "bulk" in bigger bows.....
