First, welcome! The supplies mentioned above are truely the "must-haves". Beyond the tools mentioned above, I like the Gator Bite clip. It is my personal "must-have". Once you fold your ribbon to make a bow, it holds it nicely for you while you tie it. The GB creases the bow perfectly! I never could get my bows to crease right by sewing or by simply folding (I'm not that talented
) I can't remember the website I bought it from right off the top of my head. I'll look and see if I can find it, but you can look at the demo video that is on the website on how to use the GB. It has been well worth my money!
