Default Re: BBM or NBNG?

this might help:

http://www.youtube.com/user/littlepinkladybug

It shows the basics of how to use the templates. These are only a few of the bows you can make though. There are 7-8 different techniques or "folds" for both the classic and the twisted templates.

Happy to help if you have questions!

I know there are videos for the TNT templates, I do not have a link. I don't know if there are videos for any other brands of templates, but I'm sure you could search on you tube or ask around here.

I can only speak for the BBM, I have never used the NBNG. I really like them. My bows turn out the same everytime and they are super easy.

I own both sets. I can make bows with or without templates but I'm much faster with the templates. They also help with size consistency so that when someone wants a bow "just like" the one you made "so and so" I can get the same results every time. I used to just cute cardboard and use it till it wore out. The NBNG set took care of that since they don't wear out.

I took a break for a while because I have been feeling the same way It would be so nice to have a little bowmaking man to store in my closet for bad bow days.

So glad to see that there was a tutorial for this. It really helps me feel more confident purchasing.

Keisha, I have been making bows for about ten years now. Back when there were really no m2ms out there all that was available was a bowdabra.
I still have my bowdabra!!lol.. If any of you have not seen it.. It's a long plastic thing that you shove ribbon into and wrap a wire.. then SmAsh! Not a good looking bow!
So I had only made them by hand. From the looks of it this will be sooo much easier!
