Default Why can't I...

make two bows that look just a like. I cut the ribbon the same length, fold the same way, but can not get the crease the same on each bow. When displaying I feel like some of them look off because I can't get the fold just right. They are not bad, I just want them to look more alike. HELP PLEASE!

I feel the same way sometimes. But the reality is that unless you are making a set of piggies, people won't be seeing them together anyway. As long as they are good bows, it doesn't matter if there are a very slight differences.

I have the same problem! So, I have just been making korkers, simple clippies and very easy bows in pairs. The rest are truly 'one-of-a-kind"!!

It just takes alot of practice - I always make sure to make each piece at the same time - like both bottom layers, then both top layers, etc. That way I can see if they look the same before I get to the end. Just keep trying, you'll get it

I can't make 2 exactly the same either. Korkers are the only thing that come out the same for me.

That's why I encourage my DGD to wear one ponytail instead of two,,,then the bows don't have to match LOL
