Default Re: I Need HELP!

Keep in mind that the $1 per roll baskets at Michaels are usually satin ribbon or 3/8 grossgrain ribbon. I learned the hard way that to make the Over The Top Twisted Bows you want to use at least 7/8 grossgrain and 1 1/2 grossgrain for the bows and spikes. The satin ribbon will not hold the twisted shape like the grossgrain, just wanted to put that out there because when I first started I thought those sales were great but I just wasted my money because it wasn't what I needed for the bows like this. HTH. It took me nearly 6 months to get the twisted bows and stacked bows but I'm a visual person and had to purchase good templates and tutorials. I hope you get the look you are wanting for your beautiful baby girl in a month! And there are some amazing and talented women here that that will help you along the way, me, I'm not that amazing or talented but I will cheer for you and offer any support or tips I know.

Welcome to HG, aka my drug.
