Default Baking and/or Starching Bows

I am using my NBNG templates and instructions and have a question. I am planning on baking my bows, but in the instructions she also says she starches hers in addition to baking them. I only want to bake my bows. Is it sufficient enough just to bake and not starch them? What do you do?

By the way, I love my templates and instructions. I can't recommend them enough. I also use the Gator Bite with it. Can somebody say "Woot! Woot!"?!

OMG! You will LOVE it! I feel like the Queen of Creases with my Gator Bite. The NBNG templates are so genius. I ordered the 12 template set with the spiral bound printed book. She also sent me the ebook to look at until my order arrived. It's so worth the $59.95 for all 12 templates and the book of instructions. They make so many different bow styles that I know I would have never known how to make without them. I just made 5 styles in 5 colors for an order for someone to pick up tomorrow. Woohoo!

I only starch and back my korker bows. I put them on the rod with clothes pins take outside, starch, put on a cookie sheet and put them into the oven to cook. I've never heard of baking anything else...but I'm pretty new Best of luck!

Ive been trying every method to get my bows to get stiff and nothing works. I would have never thought to bake them. I guess you learn something new everyday. haha.

I do both. I starch them then bake them so when they are packed up to go to a craft show they do not lose their shape.

When I first began making bows, I did bake and starch them. I felt they turned out way to hard so I quit doing it. I didn't like that it took the softness away from the bow. I think if you master your boutique fold, starching is really not necessary (except for korkers of course). If you still think you want to try starching, I would advise you to water down your starch just a little. It will make your bow a little softer, but will still hold the form. You can get fabric starch in the glue section of your craft store.

You really shouldnt have to starch and bake bows if you are using higher quality ribbon like Offray or Schiff.

I do starch my bows if I use UB, YAMA or ribbon from HL because that ribbon is a little flimsy.

Korkers of course need to be sprayed and then baked. I spray them again once they are done baking. I like for mine to be really stiff.
