Default What is the trick to surround loops?

I've followed the girly things site's directions to a T several times. I even had my husband try it! LOL! I measured them to match the length of the boutique bow just like it says and then even tried making them a bit shorter. They're floppy looking and don't surround the bow like the picture does. Is it the ribbon I'm using? Is there easier or better instructions anywhere?

those are the instructions I learnes from and haven't had any problems. I cut my ribbon a half inch longer than the length of the ribbon I am using on my boutique bow. It could be the ribbon you are using. I pretty much only use schiff and offray because I like how stiff it is. The stiffer ribbons also work a lot better than the thinner cheaper ribbons when making the boutique bows. My suggestion would be to try with some different ribbon and see if it turns out any different. Good luck!

The ribbontreatwholesale.com (or something like that) has really nice grosgrain ribbon. Nice a stiff..

Almost all of my ribbon is from the ribbon retreat and I still can't get the surround a loop either. Plus I have instructions that I bought with the bow maker from the ribbon retreat. It think it just takes practice.

I can't get them to work for me either. I have tried hairspray and starch. I am just not doing something right. So I decided that my hairbows are o.k. without them.
