Default Pointy/leaf tip bow instructions

Took a while, but here are my instructions. I hope they are not too hard to understand. Not like I do tutorials for a living. LOL

1 - Mark ribbon. I did this one every 5 1/2 inches with 3 inch tails, so the total length was 28 inches of ribbon. 1 1/2" wide ribbon.

2 - This shows how the ribbon will need to be laid out when you start folding it together. Sorry, I was doing this myself with one hand on the ribbon and one holding the camera!

3 - Where each mark is, I did a W fold.

4 - To make things easier, I melted the fold shut with a woodburner. You can also secure it by tying around with thread, floss, or wire.

5 - So this is how the ribbon looks when all the folds are fused shut.

6 - Refer to photo 2 for the layout (like a mountain switchback or an extended S shape.) and make the first two folds meet together.

7 - Adding the third fold to the first two.

8 - And the fourth to the first three, and continue until they are all together and secure them with thread, wire, or floss.

9 - This is the bow all tied together. Normally I would consider this the reverse of the bow.

10 - This is the reverse. The original photo posted a while back had the hollow side of the bow (9) as the top layer and the flatter side of the bow (10) as the bottom layer (as far as I could tell).

11 - Trim the tail as you prefer (V or diagonal cut) and make another bow the same size or with 1/2" longer loops. In person, you can actually see the lower layer from the top, but when photographing bows, it seems that the top layer always ends up looking larger than it actually is. I have only 1/4" tails for the lower layer, but you can have tails on both layers if you like. Really, just play with it till it looks the way YOU like it.

I also need to mention that "prleaf" adds a shank button to the center so the shank fits down into the folds and she sews through all the folds, securing the shank that way. Also, you do not have to do a W fold. That's just the way I did it to make it easier for the tutorial. You can do a bunch of mountains if you like ^^^^.
