Default Brilliant Bow Maker

Anyone have any info on this? I am considering buying it.. I just cant get that darn twisted bow to look anything like its supposed to.

Ive tryed making my own template and wrapping the ribbon around then putting the pin through and shaping... it does not work for me. Ive also tried the figure 8 and it doesnt work..

I really dont want to spend that kind of money on a template BUT I need to be able to make these bows!

Any advice or comments on them is welcome!

TIA

Personally, I love it. It's very easy to use and the bows turn out perfect

Also, do a search on here for BBM and Brillant Bow Maker there are several threads about it. HTH

i got one for my birthday from my dh! i love it and my partner in bows ended up getting one too. as for the directions, i thought the same thing but it has been worth getting them too as it showed me how to use the template and gave me measurements on ribbon etc. and how to do a few new bows i hadn't gotten to learning yet...ie. mixed color twisted bows where the single bow has 2 split colors in the one bow.

i got the whole kit and kaboodle and i am glad i did. LOVE IT! (i actually think my bows looked good before getting it but they are more consistent now and i look more alike then before the templates. my only complaint is i wish they had a larger loops template and a twisted bow template for 3/8ths ribbon.

It only takes a couple minutes to do the bow. I have not finished them with centers or clips yet. I am still playing with it

i think it has sped up my process. now i can cut a bunch of ribbon at the correct length, i mark them ahead of time, and then just make bows. i use the burn method so i just make up a bunch of them using the template and then i tie the middles after i get a bunch done. after i got good at using the template, it speeds up the process but more then that it gives consistency to my products.
