Default Re: Cheer Bows

I am assuming you mean "jacked up" is the crease in the center where the ribbons cross one another? How the outside ribbon seems to just curve over and run down from the crease?

If so, try making where the ribbon crosses over not quite as wide at the bottom. When I make a bow like that, it looks something like an awareness ribbon. The ends of the ribbon that will form the tails of the bow have about 4" or 5" between the ribbons at the bottom. That should help give your crease that "jacked up" look.

If you're still not successful, I would highly recommend going to and purchasing Devon's directions. They are wonderful and only $5.00! Well worth it!
