It is actually really simple to make. I have attached a picture so you can see how my wave bow looks, the pink wave bow in the photo is actually a double wave (you just do the mirror image on the opposite side).
TFS~! do you have any picutres you would share of the way bow before you folded it. I keep trying but they do not come out so I am wondering how many "waves" you do in the tempate..
