| | Re: Template or fold???
I make my twisted boutique bows with a template because I'm OCD about both sides being perfect and every bow being the same size. I use the no now no go templates but you can go watch their video to see how its made on their site or youtube. You could make your own template out of cardboard or something. The key to a good one is practice and starch. Prepare to make mistakes as it takes a while to master this one. But once you get it your good to go. Also, I would recommend not wasting ribbon you really like when practicing and I'd even take mine apart and reuse it each time until you get it right. Hope that helps.
