Default Re: Twisted Boutiques - I'm at your mercy

The blue one is almost there. It's all really in the angles and the creases. The more angled your x's the better. If you have wide x's you aren't going to get good results.

Your 3/8 inch ribbon is best for bitty bows. If you are hand creasing they will probably be hard for you to get right. I fold mine, use an alligator clip to hold it and then place it in my gator bite to crease it.

I have TOTTS but don't use it anymore and never did for these bows. I fold all mine by hand as I never could figure it out on the TOTTS, LPL or NBNG.

The best thing probably would be to pick one size of ribbon and practice until you get it down instead of jumping between three different sizes.

I have totts and never ever ever used them for the twisted. there is a figure 8 method somewhere on this site that people swear by! its all about measuring and finding the center, not loops off center. I currently use nbng and love them. They are fabulous!
