I would LOVE to see someone like you (who creates gorgeous twisted bows) make a short video clip of you folding a bow from beginning to end. That is my wish b/c then I would see how you hold the ribbon and where you place each new fold, how you tie/sew at the end etc... It would be awesome.

I would like to know this too. How do you do two layers? Do you just hold them together or do you glue them?

Thanks for the help!! Love your bows!!

Oh, my...that might actually be close to my first bow...

Although, yours is automatically better than mine, as you had korker skills at that point, whereas I was still trying to figure out how to run the scissors down the ribbon to make it twirl that way

I almost peed my pants. That's hilarious. I didn't make korkers for the longest time, not because I didn't know how, but because they reminded me of a poodle sitting on top of a girl's head.

If you go up to the pictures of her bows, the last two you see how she did a beautiful twisted bow? Well you know where the middle of the bows fold and almost meet together, thats what I'm thinking by " folding in " means. I can't get mine to touch like that either....
