Default Re: Share your Cheer Bows Here! Show your Spirit!

I'd also appreciate any tips on doing rhinestones with the silhouette. Thanks in advance for your help!
It is much easier than you think....basically take your ribbon and fold it in 4....first in half, then 1/2 again you will have the center and the two ends ligned up. cut from the folded end bottom in a 1/4 circle to the opposite side top....I hope I am making sense....but when you unfold it you will have a bra shape ...wish I could post a upside down B without the back it onto your ribbon or fabric and fold your bow normally and you will have your wave....
Hope this is helpful.
PM or call me if you need any assistance with it.
