Default Re: 5" Boutique bow using a thinner ribbon ?

Thank you for the nice compliment!

I like to use Aleene's Original Tacky Glue(I'm sure you can use other fabrics glues though).
Spread a thin strip across one ribbon and then take your finger and smear the glue(to have a nice thin layer of glue....this way the glue will not bleed through)......then put your other ribbon on top. wait about 5 minutes to allow the ribbons to grab onto each other and then fold into your bow.
If you wait until the glue is dry, you will not be able to fold the ribbon(the ribbon will not be flexable enough).

I hope all that made sense.

Thanks! I have to say I LOVE all your bows. I so want one for DD when she gets a little more hair, I have to put all hers on headbands still but I love all your things!
