I used them on the base of my birthday hats. I don't use them off of the rope for bows though. I use Amy's puffs for my bows. I'm sure this doesn't help, but it's another idea of what to do with thme.

Maybe put some in between two bows (stacking them) and that way some of it puffs out but the top bow hides the rope center.

DIY puffs . Just make a spiral out of a snippet. You can use hot glue on the bottom (Make sure your ends get in it too) to keep the spiral together and press it against an old photo frame glass insert. Peel off when dry and voila! Marabou puff! Fluff it so you can't see the rope center.

The first time I tried this I glued it to 1" x 1" scored squares of contact paper. Then I realized the contact paper was not permanent and just peeled it all off and hot glued the puff in.

Here is my latest creation using marabou:Loopy Christmas1.jpg

That bow is sooooooo cute!

I use this tech to make but I sew and glue.
