Default Probably a dumb question but

What is the easiest way to make a loopy in the center of an over the top stacked bow when there are two layers of ribbon so that the blank side of the ribbon isn't showing?

Do you have a pic of what you are trying to do? I don't think I understand the question.

You dont have to use double sided tape, its your preference. Ive found some ribbon sticks together fine without something holding it together. However when i do use something instead of tape i run one of the ribbons through my xyron, ive found this keeps the ribbon less bulky than using the double sided tape.

I guess you do learn something new every day, because I wouldn't have thought to use tape. I just put the ribbons together and go for it, lol!

same here. I never think to use anything to hold them in but as you get it together it holds well. Plus i've never tried tape.
yet one day

You wouldn't need to put the tape the whole length of the loop, just at spots to hold things together. The tape is a very smart idea, whis I'd thought of it!! LOL
