| | Re: Newbie Questions - bonding fabric to ribbon
It only looks like a wave because it is cinched in the middle. That actual template is a semi oval. Fold your ribbon in half and then from one end to the middle of the crease make a semi circle/oval and you should be all set. To see if it is right I just actually wrote on a 3 inch grosgrain the first time to see what it looked like when I tied it up, it took a little practice but you will find out what looks best. When I figured out the dimensions I just got a plexi glass template make out of it. Hope that helps.
