I used the free instructions from (TRR) The Ribbon Retreat-they are in pdf format-I think they're very clear. HTH

It took me a while before I got it down. I bet it took me at least 3 hours before I finished my first one. Use lots of alligator clips to keep your work in place. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43kLL_3t8hk this is what I used. If you go to her website she has printed instructions also. If you are willing to purchase instructions no bow no go has excellent instructions. Oh and keep practicing! Are you near DFW? I'm in Arlington.

Dont worry the first time I made one it took me about 2 hours and my fingers hurt like mad and I was like "all this work and pain for like $6 each!!! forget it..but practice makes perfect...only start with 4 different ribbons and stop watching the tut video but the actual pattern you are making.. and you will get it faster.

The first couple that I made took me forever as well. I needed complete silence and full concentration while I was learning. It was very frustrating to start with because I too would have to back up and start again. Just keep making them. Once you learn the steps (which there is only 4 steps technically) then you will be able to do this faster. As you practice, start focusing more on the technique instead of the ribbon colors. I can now whip one out in about 10 minutes...and I can even watch t.v. or carry on a conversation while I am making them. Hang in there, it will become more natural to you as you continue to make them.
