Default Re: How to make my twisted bows not collapse up?

For example, she has three diffrent sizes for 5/8ths ribbon with diffrent size templates. I try each size ribbon with the diffrent size templates and see which turn out the best.

I had tie mine instead of sewing them, and I had a really hard time trying to get them to turn out right. But I watched the video someone had posted where the lady uses a clippie to hold the back two pieces of ribbon together while you seperate your loops and that has made a huge difference in my twisteds. I also make my loops super seperated. And they have come out realllllly well ever since. The first time I tried seperating them like that I thought that it wasn't going to turn out right, but that was my best twisted ever. They have all been great ever since then!
Yes, I made numerous copies of that page and have it everywhere so I can use her formulas for the ribbon sizes. I've never seen this video you are talking about. Do you have the link or know what it was called so I can search for it?
