Did you get the templates as well or just the gator bite??
I bought the gator bite on her site and the shipping was super fast!

Yes, I bought the TNT templates and can't wait to get those as well. I bought the 12 templates set. It was hard to choose since some people prefer the TNT's and some the BBM's...

I have tried many things over the years, but I always come back to Dental Floss.....I get the waxed kind. When I tie my first knot the wax helps it catch, and it holds even before I tie a second one. I have never had it break on me either. I pick up store brand on the cheap! HTH!

I use dental floss,wax unscented...Its the ONLY thing I use. I buy the walmart brand, equate or something like that for less than a $1 and it works great!

I have the GatorBite and LOVE it for twisted boutique bows! Oh, and I use the organza ribbon to tie them off, and it works great. After reading other people's posts tho, I am going to try waxed dental floss!!

I tried the dental floss approach yesterday a couple of times and I just can't get it to grab and hold Not sure what I'm doing wrong, but it just doesn't seem to work for me.

The organza ribbon, however, works like a champ
