Default Ugh, boutique bows

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to make a boutique bow correctly. I have tried a few different instructions and just can't seem to get it. Can anyone give me any pointers?

Thanks!

Me neither! I make flat pinwheel bows but I can't get those adorable boutique bows either. That is why I always buy them

Ladies,

Try using the butterfly folding technique. I believe the instructions are on the girlythings site. Those are the easiest I've found.

HTH,

Shawn

I attempted those instructions too. I just couldn't make it work. Maybe I'm using the wrong size of ribbon? I don't know!

I used the instructions from girly things website but changed it up a bit For 3-5 inch bows I use 1 1/2 inch ribbon. and I go all the way to picture 8! I DO NOT DO the flip and scrunch thing!
At picture 8 I take my threaded needle and put it thru the middle of the bow (in the back).
MAKE SURE TO HOLD TIGHTLY and lay thread over the top then underneath and over the top again. ( dont pull tight yet)

then I hold the bow with one hand and pull straight up and wind it around a few times until I feel like it is secure and then tie it off in the back and tada...

Will work on getting a video or pictures up hope that wasnt to confusing. I have never had to explain it before
