Default Re: How to make bows????? I have answers!!!

I have two questions, how do you not get your bows to fold up and collapse onto each other? Mine always tends to want to bend in? I've tugged and pulled but still collapse in? Sometimes I get it but most of the time they bend? Making sense on this one?
And then if you free hand (I've been using templates), how do you know how to measure the surrounds? I have the surround template but it only comes in two sizes and then if I use my other templates for bows the surrounds don't fit. I wish the surrounds came in various sizes cuz making it with the template is easy.
Sorry for being long winded.
