Default Twisted Boutique (I know this has been asked thousands of times)

I really want to learn to make the twisted boutique bows. I have wasted much ribbon trying. I am willing to buy directions I just want to know the best ones. I looked at some and then read on here that you can't even use the template for twisted.

Any help would be greatly greatly appreciated!!!

(and yes I have searched the forum already with no luck!)

Did you try these 2 techniques yet? These 2 worked the best for me, but I mostly use the 1st technique.

Part of the problem is that they look great at first, then they just don't stay as pretty. I tried spraying with stiffener, but I didnt like the results as much.

I was in the same boat as you for a very long time, I actually bought the TNT templates. I've given up many times, but keep going back. I have only been able to accomplish this twisted boutique bow from the second set of these instructions. I have hand made all my bows for almost twenty years and had a hard time working with templates. As soon as I get my bow tied off, I straighten it a little and spray with hairspray before laying down or putting the backs on. The second set of instructions was much easier for me to figure out. Keep trying, you'll get it eventually, walk away from it, then just keep going back. Good Luck!

Have you tried baking them? Baking them after spraying works for me. Just keep on trying!

I use the sally jumbo clip to check all sides of the ribbon to make sure all the loops are the same in the back and front.

Then, I make sure the back of the ribbon isn't crooked (make sure it's straight across)

I stitch mine in the middle and I found out that even stitch lengths really make a huge difference.....

I bought the instructions from Ribbon retreat along with the bowmaker, she gives you two sets of instructions and they are both good! I have made some great twisted bows but i am just not a bow person really

I finally figured this one out!! I used the tut that hipgirl provides, and the trick REALLY is to exagerate the angles. I did them all at 90 degrees and the loops then had that weird wave/sitting on the side look.

This tut-
How To Make Boutique Hair Bow--1.5--Folding Hairbow : Hip Girl Boutique - , Ribbons, Hair Bows, Hair Clips, Hairbow Hardware, Free Hairbow Instructions

but you MUST make the angles much more exagerated than what is shown in her pics. Oh, and I used 7/8 ribbon cut at about 27 inches for bigger loops, or 24 inches for smaller loops...

This is how I do mine as well. Mindy (mbland) used to have a similiar tutorial here on hipgirls, but she's since removed it. Her tutorial was the one that made it "click" for me.
