I finally tried this technique too, and it was harder than I thought it was going to be. I may try the glue idea someone posted a few threads ago! That way, I don't keep losing my grip on it!! Thanks for the tip! Maybe I'll get it to work now!

You turn the whole bow over.

basically, when you are done with the fold, you are looking at the side that gets the clip attached to it. The bottom is the front of the bow.

Yes, the clip is awesome for this. I also put glue. Not a lot, just a small dot in the middle of the ribbon width at each step in the folding process, so that I won't have to start over if I mess one step up. Once you get the hang of it, it really speeds up the bowmaking process! Thanks for the tutorial.

I must be an idiot because I've been trying this for at least a week now and still can't get it right!!! I can make other things perfect but not a basic boutique bow! I'm so irritated about it! UUUGGGHHH!!!

quick advice - use printed ribbon. you have to have the ribbon facing the right way, its hard to see on solid ribbon. just try it!

Just wanted to share what I use to tie my hair bows together with....instead of using thread, I buy the small clear rubberbands from Sally's, they come like 250/pk for around $1.00... I just hold the crease and rubber band it together instead of trying to hold and tie thread around it.....works well for me.. The only thing is if you pull too hard they break, but you just have to start over and be sure not to use hot glue, because they melt rather quickly. I have never had one to come apart.
