Default Issue with my dior bows...

I feel like I'm not getting my loops right -- I cut a 4in' strip and hot glue the ends in the middle then run a thin strip of hot glue the middle down to form the "bow". Then I use a 1in. piece of ribbon for the center & attatch that to the back of my alligator/double prog clip. They look nice, but I'm wondering if there is an easier way to do them. Any tips or tricks that you use? I'd load up a picture but I'm working today (yuck).

Thanks

I can't picture what you are talking about, but I would love to see a pic if you get a chance.

Okay, umm... maybe they aren't called dior bows - but either way, I feel like I'm not making them even. Here's a picture of what I'm talking about. The loop that runs the along the top of the lined clip is what I'm trying to figure out. (Sorry, if I'm blabbering)

*not my clips, just an example of the clips I've made for reference*
Sorry it came out so large...

I call these "bar bows." I do them the exact same way that you do. I've noticed that if you don't make sure everything's exactly centered (luckily, I tend to be a perfectionist, so I don't have many problems with this), the loops will be off. As I do them the same way you do, I'd be interested to hear if there are any tips, as well.

I think they look good. The loops on the 1st and 2nd look a tad long to me, but other than that, looks good to me. We are always our own best critic.

I don't think those are hers - just examples of the type of bow she's talking about

LOL that's too funny. I got a picture off my cell phone -- be honest with me, especially since these are my first attempts and I'd eventually like to do this for profit (eventually



and I'm trying to get consistency with my loops (thanks for wording that better than I could the past 2 days). Right now I'm using double prong clips w/ 4 inch loops... is that about right you think?
