Default Re: Cheer Bows

lol..there's nothing wrong by buying instructions / pattern. What I'm trying to say about the Heat & Bond is, it WILL stiffen your ribbon. If you don't do make it into a bow, immediately, you will hv difficulty in creasing. I mean, it won't be that difficult but just be prepare to flex some finger muscles... You'll know what I mean when you actually do it.

Keep us posted and we'll help ya out, cool beans...

p/s: Our school won't be out till June 4th I'm ready for mumy-break..i.e no driving...

I'm kinda kicking myself for taking on such a huge project when I'm a novice, but I couldn't turn down the, the money is gonna be pretty good, so that doesn't hurt either.

Come heck or high water....I'm gonna get those bows made, lol!

Thanks for the tip...I'm sure I'll have more questions so stay posted...
