This! I couldn't & wouldn't make a single bow without my TNT's I bought a few templates & instructions when I was just starting out, and these are by far the best I've tried! Love 'em!

I did not have any cardboard at the time so I made two of the same size out of cardstock and glued them together. Worked just fine for me.

So I watched the video, found the perfect thing for making a template It was an old dollar store kids book make out of the heavy cardboard (the kind of toddler books that are not easily ripped).

Started the bow..........2 hours later, many bows later I am happy with the results of my 1.5" bows but still need work on the 7/8" but I am getting there, no where near sellable...but everyone is right, once you GET it, it becomes so quick and easy.

I am much better at the basic boutique bows
