Default Re: It takes me too long to put a bow together

LOL I think that's why a boutique bow is a boutique bow, not everyone makes them, and they're not giving them away for free!
They do take a lot of time and care to make if done right.
It might make it easier if you start assembling all the elements of your bows sweat-shop style LOL: Cut and crease all ribbons at once. Do a whole bunch of spikes, bunch of base bows, bunch of loops, bunch of toppers, bunch of caps...... lay them all out, stacked bottom to top as you'll need them, and get to work....... all tops on bases, all surrounds where you need 'em, then all spikes on bottoms, then all caps..... time yourself with this method compared to one-by-one and see if that helps.
