yes you make perfect sense. I just wish I could get it right on the first shot everytime. There is nothing more annoying than having to redo a bow. It slows me down.

I know what you mean. It is very frustrating. What gets me is when I am creasing it and my fingers get stiff and the ribbon just POOF--- flies out of my hand. I am like URGHGHGHGHG!!!!!!

If I am having trouble getting the loops all even I measure and mark each loop, like in Michelles inst. so I mark at 1.5in, then at say 4in (4 times) then cut at 1.5in....I don't always have to do this but if I am having a hard time getting them right it keeps me from having to redo and redo and redo...HTH

that is a good point. I do that as well. I use michelle's instructions on how to get my loops even. They work great!
