I'm still having a hard time getting my twisted bows twisty. I'm doing it the Figure 8 way, I just can't seem to get the hang of wrapping it around something and then pulling it apart. I think it's because I'm not sure what length I should have for the width of the ribbon etc etc.
I bought a bunch of ribbon from Walmart that was $1 for 5yards. I use that as my practice ribbon so I don't use up the good stuff
