I redid my cardboard templates and tried my hand again at doing a pinwheel bow. Still not very good at getting it tied tight right off the bat, but I'm working on it! I know it's not done, just wanted to post it

I wanted to comment earlier but I was waiting for someone else (experienced) to go first. I bought the NBNG templates and made my first pinwheel the other night. I thought I did a pretty good job, it almost looks as good as yours. But, I thought I would ride on the critiques you received before I posted mine... j/k. DH thinks I am a bow genius, too bad he knows nothing about bows. I think your pinwheel is really, really nice. In the past, I have only made a specialty bow for a specific crowd but I want to branch out now. I do like the NBNG templates.

Haha thanks! I've seen cardboard templates for making bows online and I made some originally, then changed it a little bit to use with the salon clip and make it easier for me. And voila pinwheel bow LOL

looks great! I use a salon clip too and that's easier for me so maybe testing out other methods might help you too.

Ah cardboard template! I think I saw that somewhere but I had forgotten! Stinking hard to try to hold onto all of that 1.5 inch ribbon!
