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

Ok I might have some of that too, I didn't think about folding it before the glue dries I guess thats why when i did use it before, I was thinking that it wouldn't work but folding it before the glue dries would make the difference.

THANKS so much!

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.
