Lightbulb Perfect Crease

There was a previous post asking about this.

I came across this and thought some will find it helpful, I do suggest using the metal clips though.

Hth,
Tammie

I have these. they do help be the third hand. My problem is the elastic breaks or the clip snags my ribbon. Any one else have these problems.?

I did then I started using dental floss. That seems to be holding.

Me too I have them and I used them with the bows I just made. It does help. But not good for all bows. )

I'd probably use quilting thread or floss.

True not good for all bows, Because imo the fold makes the bow but this is a good idea for those just starting out.

I use the upholstry and/or button threads as well and they are much more sturdy. This method also works really well if you use the zip ties. I usually use the zip ties on the stacked bows b/c it really cuts down on some of the "middle" bulk. HTH

I remember that Group...lol... Funny way the Group was formed.

I've used it using the embroidery floss (cross-stitch) and it doesn't snag the ribbon....unless you're using Satin?.. but on the GG, it doesn't.

I use a pair of Viscripts (not sure of the spelling) anyway they look like pliers and the lock. To actually tie it I use floral wire. It really works well for me.
