Default Re: 2 1/4 Cheer Bow Help

I normally make a cheer bow using 28" of 3" ribbon. You may want to try and reduce the length of your ribbon to 26". Make your ribbon marks at 6", 13" and 20". When forming your bow, I would try and use an embroidery floss vs. A wire tie. I would also accordion fold and wrap the cross section with the embroidery floss in the front first, then do another accordion fold in the back and join to the front. That may help your loops stand up more vertically. Hope that helps.
