Default Tip for Creasing Bows

I'm sure this has been mentioned a thousand times before, but I've never seen it and if it could be of help to anyone just starting out, than I'd be happy.

I started weaving a straight pin through the center folds of my bow where they all meet. I usually just do 2, starting at the top and going under and back up, then scrunch the ribbon down around it while I secure it with my bow wire. This has made it so much easier to crease my bows and not loose the loops like I used to. Before I tie a second knot, I remove the pin and make any adjustments I need to, and then cinch it down tight and double knot it. Basically the same as sewing it.

Hope that helps someone out!

Thanks for sharing! I do this too. It makes the bows more portable- so i can work away from my desk. I can finish the centers later at the bow table.

I do this same thing with sewing, except I start on top, very near the edge, back up and down enough to make the three 'peaks' and finish on top, pull the needle through and wrap with the attached thread.

Thank you that really helped. Sometimes no matter how well something is written or described I just need to see it to get it.
