| | Applying a slider to a bow: horizontal or vertical bar
At the risk of asking a question that is probably obvious to everyone else, is it possible to apply the slider before tying the bow off? Or do you tie it off and then use a piece of ribbon to finish the bow and apply the slider?
If you use the finishing ribbon then am I correct in assuming you would usually need a slider with a horizontal bar or would it depend on the bow?
Which styles would call for a horizontal bar and which would call for vertical one?
