Default What do you tie your BOUTIQUE BOWS with?

I'm trying to practice with my boutique bows, and I've seen where some people tie them once they've got the creases in them (like in the Gator Bite video). What do you use to tie them off with?

Thank you in advance!

I put a stitch thru them with upholstery thread. Holds well and doesn't break! I can get those suckers tight.

I sew them together and that is a great way to get a good crease.

Since I've been using TnT, I've been sewing with upholstery thread.

Although, if I have layered ribbon and its hard to crease, then I'll grab my gator bite. First, I'll weave my thread through the ribbon. Then I use my gator bite, crease and tie with emb. floss. Then I pull the upholstery thread tight, snip off the emb. floss, and continue on wrapping around the center with the uphol. thread and stitch. Hope that made sense.

I also use upholstery thread. I think it works best. I used to use wire and found that it made the bows a little heavier. Especially the stacked bows.

Default Re: What do you tie your BOUTIQUE BOWS with?

I use recycled wire from other ribbon. When I purchase ribbon that is 'wired', I just use my small pliers to pull the wires out and then save that wire to tie my bows with.

I tried sew my bows, but they didn't come out as nice as they do when I use the wire!
