Default can't seem to get it

Ok, I'm trying to make my first boutique style bows and I'm just not getting it. I'm a pretty crafty person and it's driving me crazy why I can't seem to understand them. I've read about templates where can I get these, do they work? Thanks for the help. I've master the korker bow, but that was about it so far

Do you have pictures of your attempts?

I can point you towards templates for the twisted boutique bow

Don't feel bad hun...I STILL for the life of me can't get the boutique twisted ones...drives me INSANE. But I think templates are not a bad idea...i can't bring myself to buy any cuz I think...if I can't do this with my own two little hands...it just wasn't meant to be LOL.

Believe me they where not meant to me either but after I got my BBM template I love them and they turn perfect each and every time of course not a pro at all but they look super great in comparission to what I used to come up with before.
You can get the BBM from the modest genius who posted above LOL

I make mine way diffrent. What I do is fold one side of the ribbon to the middle line normal and fold it over. Then I take the other side and fold it like normal, but put it underneath and fold it over. You still have your tails if you want them this way too. Then while still looking at the back of the bow, mess around with it. It's so much easier. I then grab my sally's clip, and check to see if it's even. Once its even, while still on the sally's clip I then thread it. If anyone wants pics let me know
