Do not use curling iron! Use scissors like you use to curl the ribbon you tie to balloons.. make sense?

I bought it from a HG friend (who I haven't ever met in person).. She's my friends, friend really. She does bows in TX and she was placing an order I ordered 3 different colors from her. I'll find out the company for you though. They are pretty expensive ($15 something a rope). She's a HG member but I don't think she's been here much bc she's getting ready for some huge show she's doing in Nov in TX.

ahaygood,
What type of organza do you use for you pins? I have been trying to make these and bought some from WM and it doesn't seem to work like I want it to. Thanks

It's actually looks good to me. I don't see anything wrong. May be double the feathers for a fuller look that you might like better. But I like this one :-)

Check under group buys - there's a quick one just opened that will close I think on Sunday or Monday. They're $9 each.

Right! Do you have any tips/tricks for singeing the edges? I have been working with it and it looks ok, but I want mine to look better.
Thanks
