A ton of practice. Your first ones will never be as good as the ones you are making now. I started making bows 9 yrs ago for my daughters and I thought they looked cute but now that I look back I want to cringe that I even took a pic of them with those bows in their heads. Lots of practice and there are so many free instructions out there and tips to help improve your work. Good luck!

Templates. Repetition. I have found that filling wholesale orders seems to help with my skills. Making the same darn fold over and over and critiquing the end product and tweaking the next one to see how it turns out.

I'm no where near perfect. I write down ribbon lengths for widths of ribbon. I try to make bows into a formula.

ex a pinwheel w 7/8 reeds x length of ribbon.

researching folds and playing around.

I recently started using starch and baking boutique bows. So trying new things to improve also helps me
