Default How do you make a bow pop?

Attached is the bow I am trying to make - My bow is flat - the loops do not stand up & pop. Any Suggestions???

Try spraying it with stiffener and then bending it together in the middle...the loops going toward each other.

That looks like 3/8" ribbon, right? IMO, 3/8 doesn't stand up as well as say the 5/8 or up. You can get it to stand up with a little stiffener, or maybe try angling your loops more when you make the bow, if that makes sense.

I don't know how to explain, but it's decided when you fold the loops. make sure that the angle (of the loopies) in the middle of the bow is not bnarrow. I'll try to make some photo and post again today.

Red face Thanks!

Day 2 & I still can not get it - I am going out tomorrow to buy the stiffener. I could just not be doing the whole bow correctly. Pictures would be wonderful - Thanks Jill

Do you have a bow maker? I started using the one I got from TOTT and it definently helped my bows to "pop"

I agree with what everyone else is saying. 3/8" ribbon doesn't ''pop'' as much, but it can. It has to do with the angle that you fold your ribbon as you make your bow. Instead of making a figure 8, make it more like a letter 'B' on each side. The tails should point up & down instead of side to side. Larger ribbon 'pops more. I know it's hard without pics.

Hello, I am sorry I totally forgot I promised to post some photos.
here they are as following. un the 1st and 2nd photos the bow is kinda flat but if you changed the way folding the loops a bit as in 3rd 4th 5th photos, your bow kinda pop before being sprayed with stiffener. Personally I think stiffener is just to dress your bow up, but you need to get the shape by folding. For me, this works the same with 1 1/2", 3/8" and 5/8" ribbon as well. in the photos I used 7/8 ribbon.
HTH,
Lynn
