I'm so excited! I went to Sally's to get the clips last week and they were out so I hadn't really been able to try it this way, but tonight I stopped in and they had them in stock, so cross your fingers for me that I get this down tonight! Oh, and I love the pretty clip colors lol

Ok, so I tried it using the sally clip and youtube video and while I think it looks a lot better, I think I still need more practice! Anyone have any pointers on what I'm doing wrong???

Can someone also tell me what she is using as thread?? This may be a dumb question but obviously it's not regular thread and if I try and use regular thread when I pull it to cinch it, it breaks

Thanks! I'll look into this. Do you pull the bow to create the crease like she does??

I use dental floss. It won't break and is cheap and easy to find!

For your bow make sure you pull your loops to make an X in the front. The loops in the back should be straight across. When you get your crease just right then shaping will be all you will need to do and it will look right. You are getting closer! Keep trying. Mine are definitely not perfect, but here is a pic of one I made with 1.5 inch ribbon. See how the loops are making a tall, skinny X? Also, the back has the ribbon going straight across.
