Default Baking ribbon

I'm curious as to why some people bake their bows. I'm pretty new and still learning and I'm learning a lot for this amazing site. But why would u bake a bow and at what temp for how long. Might sound dumb but I would be scared of burning it. Thanks ladies

Baking it is similar to starching it (or you can do both). It helps the bow hold its shape better. I starch and then bake some of mine because I think they stand up to little people mandhandling better. I spray with starch and bake at 250 degrees for 15 minutes. Never had a problem with burning any.

I bake all of mine. I don't let them touch as some can bleed. ...and I know from experience that they can get burn marks if the oven is too high.

Might sound like common sense, but I definitely wouldn't have thought about it if someone hadn't warned me. Make sure to bake them before you use any glue on them.

I use spray starch and bake all my bows to stiffen them. I've only had problems with the color on printed ribbon bleeding or fading a little because it was left in a little too long. I've never burnt them though 275 for 25 here
