You got it. It does get confusing when people use "boutique bow" and "twisted boutique bow" interchangeably, as they're not the same thing.

I'm still having a hard time getting my twisted bows twisty. I'm doing it the Figure 8 way, I just can't seem to get the hang of wrapping it around something and then pulling it apart. I think it's because I'm not sure what length I should have for the width of the ribbon etc etc.

I bought a bunch of ribbon from Walmart that was $1 for 5yards. I use that as my practice ribbon so I don't use up the good stuff

It is confusing! I remember when I first started reading about them, it didn't make sense to me.

Do a search here and on the net for "ribbon recipes" and you should find some length formulas.

For a 4" twisted boutique bow I used 26" of 7/8" wide ribbon

Maxine....I prefer using Schiff or Offray ribbon when I make my twisted bows. Also spray and bake them once you have them shaped the way you want them to be.

I just got in some ribbon from RABOM yesterday. What type do they sell? I'm going to try it with a piece from one of the rolls.

I think they have Offray but I could be wrong. I have never ordered solids from there. Compare it to the ribbon you have right now. Is it sturdier? I know UB and Yama have a more softer gg.

RABOM carries offray and schiff. If you buy their "solid grosgrain" you're getting schiff. If you buy from the "offray grosgrain" its offray.
