Default Applying a slider to a bow: horizontal or vertical bar

At the risk of asking a question that is probably obvious to everyone else, is it possible to apply the slider before tying the bow off? Or do you tie it off and then use a piece of ribbon to finish the bow and apply the slider?

If you use the finishing ribbon then am I correct in assuming you would usually need a slider with a horizontal bar or would it depend on the bow?

Which styles would call for a horizontal bar and which would call for vertical one?

TIA,
KelMac

I've only used them a few times, but I think you use them with the finishing ribbon. So yes, horizontal. When i did it, I slid the slider on my center piece then glued in place. HTH!

Maybe Im weird but here's my take lol I don't like addign them to the center ribbon because it tends to pull the ribbon back and then it shows gaps between the ribbon and the outer part of the slider (does that make sense?)

what I actuallydo is cut a little piece of ribbon, seal the ends and glue it on the slider (over the center bar, under the sides) and then glue the whole shebang on the center of the bow. Some I do horizontally and some vertically, depends on what looks best when I put it together.

hope this makes sense, I apologize for typos, my 2yo is "helping" me type

So basically you wrap a small piece of ribbon around the bar on the back of the slider and glue it? Does this mean you can skip the center ribbon and just glue it to the middle of the bow? Or do you do the ribbon center and glue the wrapped slider onto that?

Thanks

Don't skip your center ribbon. The center ribbon is to hide the side view of your threads as well. If you skip it, the top might look pretty but the side view of your bow will not.
