Default Re: someone please helP!!

I've been doing this a couple of years....I would venture to say that most people are not going to make this type of bow starting out. Learning to work with the ribbon and getting the crease right. I use the TOTTS, but I use the hand folded method. It takes LOTS of practice. Most bows you see on etsy and ebay have been stiffened and formed so your loops are exactly where they need to be. The secret is definitely the angle of your ribbon and creasing. I have not tried any of the other templates out you may be able to do this bow with one of the newer ones that have come out recently. If you have one of your bows someone could give you pointers on what to work on. HTH! Good luck!!
