Default can someone please help me??

I am new to this and my bows look flat not at all puffed up or "fluffed" like some of the other ones I have seen. How do you get the "loops" to look like they are on their side? Also, does anyone have a tutorial on how to make a double layer boutique bow? And last question, what is the best type of bow to make with 5/8" ribbon?? Please and Thank you.

Jennifer

Do you bake your bows? I've found that that helps them to stay puffed up. I don't use 5/8 much so hopefully some of the other girls can help you out.

I make 2" pinwheels, basic boutiques, and twisted boutiques with 5/8" ribbon. Also, I starch my bows to help them keep their shape. Welcome to the forum!

So, how do you do the twisted boutique bow?

What is better to bake or starch them? How do you do that?

I use the Top Notch Templates by No Bow No Go for all of my bows (they're awesome!). I bake my korkers (of course) and then starch after assembled, but only starch all of my other bows (maybe I'm lazy? . I use a solution of 50% sta-flo (craft starch you can find at Walmart), and 50% water, spray, and let dry. Works great for me! They definitely hold their shape. HTH.

Can you post a pic of an example? It may be easier to give you advice if we see what you are wanting to change.
