Default How much time does it take you to make your bows?

I am curious how long it takes you to make the following items:

Simple bow clippie?

Basic 3 inch boutique bow?

Layered boutique bow (ie. three spikes, two surrounds, bow)?

I am thinking the time from cutting the ribbon, heat sealing, making the bow, lining clip, assembly onto the clip...ready to go! Gathering materials and clean up are not in this equation

Sometimes I feel like I am really sloooooow...lol.

Thank you

I feel really slow some days too. But then there are the days when I can knock out an $80 order in just an hour.

For a simple bow clippie-it takes me about 5 minutes, start to finish.

I don't make the other bows you mentioned.

I would say the basic bow takes me a few minutes, I go straight from the roll so I dont measure or cut it first very much, and then loops are about minute and spikes are a bit more b.c of the layering and cutting so I would say a fancy boutique bow maybe 15 minutes at the MOST.
