Default Re shaping bows

Hi all! I just got back some bows that I sell on consignment and they are smooshed and misshapened. I guess they were all crammed together in the store! I starched and baked them when I first made them so I was wondering if I should restarch them in order to straighten them up a bit? Anyone have suggestions or tips?

Someone told me about stiff n spray. You can get it at micheals ($6.99). Its concentrated starch so its stronger. A lady used two coats on her bows and blow dried it and it was good. Dont do anymore though because it will be hard stiff (like you arent damaging it at all) lol

Be careful with that stuff I used it on a couple of bows and they are hard as a rock. They feel like paper. I'm afraid to handle them too much or I feel like they will crumble. Haha!

You should be able to reshape them by cuping your hand and pushing in the center. On each loop you need to stick your finger inside and bend the ribbon to reshape itself.

You could take a spray bottle, and spray just a little water on them to "soften" them up and reshape.
