Unhappy Please I Need Help Lol

Ok I cannot make a nice boutique to save my life, i have ordered the gator bit and I am waiting for that to come and hoping it will help me. But I was thinking of purchasing the wooden bow maker, before I go spending anymore money, will it really help me?
I have followed the step by step instructions provided on the this website but just can't seem to get it~

Yep. Just your angles. Try to get the angles at 90 degrees.

What size ribbon is easier to work with?

I've never used one, but I think it would get in the way more than help me personally...

You just need to work on your angles--it's very awkward to hold the bow with the ribbons at 90* when you first try it, but it's worth it...

I always use a 7/8 or a 1 1/2 ribbon... I think they look the best...

maybe that is it, whenever I am shaping the bow, it looks so akward at the 90 deg angle LOL, so I guess I move it back to much. I think I am also losing the shape when I go to tie it off....

Thanks so much for the help....now does anyone know a good way to flatten bottlecaps? LOL

Rebecca that's a great cheat. I had been doing mine the other way, but this looks much easier.

I actually have the bowmake & instructions to go with it & I can't makie one that way to save myself. I am not all that good at it & it takes me a while but I can finally make them by hand.
