Default Letters - help?

I have a customer who wants me to make her a letter bow - specifically an A. But I'd like to do something sculpture-y rather than just a flat 3-line capital A. Any ideas??

I asked her about all that stuff - she really likes the sculpture bows, and wants the bow itself to be an A

Little guy is already having nap #1 of the day! DD is watching Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, dancing and bouncing around. Not sure why they decided to get up so early but it didn't help that I was on here until 2:45am being, uh, curious! let's say!

Oh mine will probably look ridiculous but hopefully I can at least tell you what NOT to do to make an 'A'!

OK, now like I said it will probably show you what you don't want to do ... so please be nice and don't laugh! (OK, you can chuckle!).

I tried to make a script capital 'A'. I was thinking that a korker may work across the middle.




I also tried to make a lowercase script a; I think the shape and the tail of the a would hold shape better once it was glued to the bow/clippie.



HTH!
