Okay, I can't find the question in the original thread so I could verify that she said back but I thought she did. Anyway, regardless it works better when tied off in the back as evidenced by my bows. After 2 years of making bows, I am finally proud of my twisted boutique bows. Many hours of frustration and practice had been in vain b/c I was doing one simple thing wrong all this time. I hope this small tip helps someone else too.

I don't know exactly what that means because I do mine differently. But yours looked great so I say stick to what works.

I think I remember somewhere she said to tie on the back... I can't find the thread but I am sure the OP is correct.

Oh I wasn't trying to say she was wrong. Just posting why some of the girls were confused.

Sorry if I sounded harsh I was just trying to add to the thread that I also thought she said tie on the back, that was all...

Anyway, what I was doing was tying it off and tying toward the front of the bow. Apparently, you need to tie it off towards the back of the bow so when it folds, it faces down. DUH!!!! OMG, I just wanted to show you what my previous bows looked like and what it looks like now. WOW, big difference.

Thanks again JustDaisy! Oh, and I have like 2 or 3 sets of bow instructions I've bought and no one has ever said this before. Maybe it's obvious or maybe it's overlooked but it's an important step. Just wanted to share in case anyone else could benefit from this tip.

Top bow is my new bow and bottom is my previous bow.
Thanks so much! I'm definitely going to have to try this the next time I attempt to make one of these bows

I didn't take it harshly at all. Perhaps I did read it wrong. I thought she said tie it in the back but either way, it has helped my bows to look better. So, I'm happy!!

I have the same problem with tying them in the back!!! I have always tied them in the back and they fold in!!!!! I also think she said not to pull and wrap thread around the front, to take it down and around the back!!! Maybe that is whats so confusing! That is what I was guilty of, pulling thread tight then taking it up and over to wrap! Mine turn out totally different now also, BETTER!!!! HTH

Ok, let me see if I got this right... You have to put the needle through the crease and then just wrap in the back and go through the crease again (with needle)?

Is that what you mean? This is so confusing. I always wrap around the whole middle/crease 2 times. That might be what I am doing wrong?

Well, I don't have her instructions so I was going by my own experience and I use a GatorBite and floss. I don't use needle and thread to tie off. I just wrap floss around the bow with the GB and then tie off. I used to wrap the floss and pull it up the front and tie towards the front. That's where I was having problems with it flopping up, curling upwards. Now I pull the floss towards the back and tie it off in the back. Hope that makes it a little clearer. I have tried needle and thread and never liked it. Just my personal style.

Also, I really love my Gator Bite. It has teeth and it really helps to grip the ribbon to help with the crease. I promise I don't work for them. I think it might make a difference too. I have never used anything else like the Sally's clip.
