Hope my questions arent confusing) Thanks Alondra
You just have to play around with what works for you. The video the pp posted is my video. I use 4" template for 5/8" ribbon, 4 1/2" template for 7/8" ribbon and a 6" template for 1 1/2" ribbon. And yes, the template is labeled based on the width of the template. hth
