Default What size ribbon for twisted boutique?

Okay, girls! There has been a lot of talk lately about the infamous twisted boutique bows. I personally STINK at them, but I'm working on it very hard.

Here's the question ~ what size ribbon do you make the majority of your TB's with?

I've been trying with 1.5" with terrible results. Maybe this will help me get a clue ~ and help others as well.

THANKS!
Heather

I found that it was much easier for me to pratice on the 7/8. For me I was able to do the 7/8 before the 3/8 or the 1" and up.

The 3/8 was tough for me b/c you want to get the good angle and fold in the center and since they are small bows it took me longer to get.

I use both 7/8" & 1.5"...I try to only use stiffer ribbon when working with 1.5" in my opinion it makes it easier...I also use TNT so I'm kind of cheating!!!

I like to use the 1 1/2 in ribbon. I also like to use the stiffer ribbon. It takes practice to find the right look you want.
