Ok this is what I get when I try to use the printed ribbon. One loop is inside out. No hurry I know your really busy with releasing your new templates! yay!

I totally understand your dilemma. I don't know of a crossfold bow that you can get split tails with printed ribbon. You can fold it normally, then just crease it from the "back" and have both tails forward. It will look more like a pinwheel bow. (a true pinwheel is a spiral fold).

Ok - I just tried this, and I can't get a pic up at the moment, but it worked pretty well.

For the loop that is backwards - Twist the ribbon. Yep, twist it before you flip the last loop forward. You have to stitch it secure to keep the twist, but practice on a few bows and see if you can get it to work. After tomorrow, I might have a chance to add a little tutorial for the printable pages on the website. Seems like a useful fold!
Brilliant Bowmaker Templates!
