Default Rhinestone Bow -Heavy!

Okay... I am definitely not a cheer bow newbie, as I've made my fair share of bows, but this has me stumped. My daughter is a senior and gets to wear one "special" senior bow that is custom for her (for one game during football & one during basketball). She wants a rhinestone covered bow. I had a spare extra single layer bow laying around from my last order so I added rhinestones to it on the tails (6 rows), 3 rows across the top, 1 row across the bottom and covered the middle. It is BEAUTIFUL but.... HEAVY! I obviously wasn't thinking when I used a pre-made not stiff or reinforced-back bow.

Do any of you have any ideas how I can "line" the backside of the bow now that it's made or a way to reinforce the inside of the loops to make it stronger?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!!! I'll post a pic when I get done with it... it's pricey (although I used leftover rhinestones so it didn't cost me anything) but she will definitely be blingy and beautiful!

Thanks!!

Tina

A trick I learned on here: I would try spraying it with plenty of stiffening spray and then stuffing the loops with tissue paper and letting it dry. If the rhinestones are too heavy you might want to spray and dry it a few times (using new tissue paper each time, of course. I bet she will look beautiful!!

Should I cover the rhinestones with something first (like maybe that sticky saran wrap) so they don't get a haze on them? I am just kicking myself for not starting with a stiffened bow! I was just too excited to bling it....ha! I will definitely give it a go, as I've stiffened lots of bows before. You all are awesome, told my dd that I would go to the bow experts and they would help me.... THANK YOU!!!

That is tricky. Most stiffeners will wash off with a damp cloth (maybe a diaper wipe would work?) Also, if you spray it from the inside you might avoid the rhinestones all together. Maybe test a few to see if it makes a difference or not.

If you have a paint brush maybe you could use that to help you apply the stiffener that way you don't get it on the rhinestones. Hope this helps and yeah the tissue paper works I do that all the time and it shapes it like I want it. Just make sure your loops look even with the tissue before you stiffen.
