| | Re: What do you tie your BOUTIQUE BOWS with?
I started out using wire, but have moved to elastic thread. I don't sew mine, but wrap the thread around the pleats (center) several times and knot it. I then dot it with glue to secure it to the clip (plus more glue on the clip) and to the knot of the center tie going around the whole bow center. It's been wonderful and I haven't had any problems with it. I can get it really tight and I haven't had any break on me.
