Default Re: Cheer Bows Overload II ***Picture heavy!***

I had some problems with the bows, the HnB wasn't bonding, but couldn't use E6000 due to the strong possibility of the glue showing through the ribbon. Some of the ribbon smeared due to ironing, even though I ironed on the back side of the black ribbon, it was a near-disaster....will never order zebra from RABOM again. Because of the smearing, I had to fold some of the bows differently, because the ribbon actually had a "top" and "bottom" where the zebra stripe continued to the edge of the ribbon only on one side...the other side's stripes stopped about 1/4" to 1/8" from the edge of the ribbon. So, I had to either fold them differently or have the edge of zebra ribbon showing that had an area void of stripes showing. Hard to explain, but what a royal PIA. next time, just sticking with my zebra standby, venus or Schiff.
