Default Help! How do I make this kind of bow?

Hi Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

I am trying to make this type of bow for one of my DD's outfits but with no luck, I know it takes practice but I just can't get it right! I guess I could figure out a few things but there are somethings I'm stumped on like... how do I make the 3/8 ribbon so uniform and what kind of folding do I use for the base bow? I think her bows are beautiful and I want to learn how to do these before I buy everything she's got!

ANY advice would be appreciated,
Lanisia

The middle bow is a boutique bow, with surrounds around it. It aslo has a base bow with spikes.

try this website: Free Instructions: Loopy Surround-a-Bow Surrounds Surround
It is tricky.


Michelle has really great instructions for a boutique bow on this website. good luck

Do the TOTTS instructions show you how to put these types of bows together? I have done a couple, but am overly anal retentive and not happy w/ outcome.

You know I have been trying to figure this out on my own but I think that ship has sailed! I am going to purchase the instructions... from what I can gather, everyone says they are the best of the best

I have TOTTS and I love it, but I must say Mindi's twisted boutique instructions were the best for me. Search for Mindi's instructions, bet they will be helpful to ya. Still took several tries, but is very clear and the pictures are great.
