I stuff the loops of mine with plastic grocery bags to hold them in the shape I want and spray with heavy fabric starch and let them dry for a few hours. I saw a tut somewhere that recommended using tissue paper to do it, but I had tissue paper stick to one of my bows. The grocery bags are plentiful, cheap (ok, free
, recyclable, and don't stick.
I LOVE the CDO. I'm going to have to steal that.
