Default Re: How to add spikes

Spikes are SUPER easy. If your finished bow is say 3" you would want to cut 2 pieces of the ribbon of your choice at 4".
About 1" up from the end of each 4" ribbon fold it in half long ways and cut it in a downward slash (doing it upward will give you a 1 point, this method will give you the < shape)
While it's still folded go ahead and heat seal it!!
Do that on all 4 ends.
Make an X out of both pieces and sinch them together and tie them off and voila!! Place them under your finished bow and attatch them ( I use thread and needle)

Clear as mud?
