Default Help with Satin Ribbon

Ok, I need some advice on satin ribbon. I have never made bows out of satin before but I have an order that needs done with it. Is there a trick to working with it? I just can't seem to make the bow look like it should. I don't know if it is just because it is slick or what. Any advice is greatly appreciated!

The only bows I can make out of satin ribbon is pinwheel bows. I've tried boutique bows but the loops don hold as well as like they do with the grosgain ribbon. I guess it is because the are so light. They just don hold a shape very well.

When I use satin ribbon to make boutique bows I use peice of grosgrain underneath it to give it stability! HTH

Thanks for the help. The satin I have is only single sided, but that is what I have to use because it is the same ribbon they used on the dress and she wants it for the bow. So when you put grosgrain on the underside for stability, do you glue it to the satin? I will just have to keep playing with it and get it to work. Thanks!
