I love my NBNG templates - I couldn't make a twisted boutique bow (as well as my other bows) without them!

This stupid bow has taken me a year to figure out and honestly I still hate my bows! This is my latest bow creation. I have to use my NBNG template and my gator bite. Hopefully one day I'll figure it out! I think I am harsh on myself though. I hate everything I make.

NBNG templates are awesome, but getting those bows down takes a lot of practice. Once you get it, you get a good feel for it and it gets easier.

Good luck

No matter what template you choose, practice is key! I still second guess mine also!
