The jack-o-lantern bow is a twisted bow; not a boutique bow (in case you are using the wrong instructions.) The green dotted bow looks like a boutique bow and the blue printed bow looks like a twisted that maybe needs to be spread a little further(?). I hope this makes sense and maybe helps...

Ok so maybe that's where I went wrong. I hope I can get these down before Halloween.

do you have templates?

I fold mine.. so here goes..

for that style fold a pretzel shape. look for front or back ..
fold. watch your folds. you can see them in the 3rd bow for reference.. You'll have 3 folds out to the front (x marks the front and the back ribbon runs across)

It will be soo easy once you get it. Try starting w/large width ribbon for practice because it will be easier to fold..

If so what I mean is pretzel..
fold a "b" shape, flip under and do a "B" backwards on the reverse side to make it. Then you have your pretzel. Once you fold it will take that shape

pm me if you want the 411. see what we can find

I was having the same problem a while back. If you are using the "figure 8" method, make your 8 skinnier. Then when you pull in your loops, it will make them look like the bow you pictured.
