You mean make a smaller bow? Is that what you mean by shorten the ribbon? What would be a good length for me to try next time?

When you say shorten it, do you mean the length of ribbon? Do you mind telling me how long they should be? I'm really working on this bow. I am not giving up.

Is this one any better? Or is it the same as the green one? (lol, maybe it's worse! lol )

I was so excited today. My korker actually looks pretty good and my twisted, not too bad. Its not what some of these ladies make, but I think I'm getting there!?!?
Yes, yes! I want to see pics please! Like I said, we can learn together

Well, it might be a tad smaller. I've found that by finding the perfect length of ribbon - you get a perkier bow without really having a size change. When my camera is finished charging, I'll take a pic. But you can make two bows, say with 7/8" ribbon for both & you want to end up with a 3" twisted bow. If you use 24" for one, you can get a nice 3" bow, but if you use 22" on another, it still can measure 3" but will be a little more full looking. I'm terrible at explaining things, lol. I'll try to get a picture loaded tonight to explain for me!

I think sometimes that the perkiness or fullness can just come from moving the loops into place and starching. I learned that you can really change the look of the twisteds by moving the loops around. Does that make sense?

It sure does make sense I fiddled with the 2 bows above but I guess maybe not enough(?)

Yeah, don't be afraid to move them around. I jerk them this way and that. I also hold them certain ways while I use the hairdryer on them after starching. I used to not touch them, but realized you had to.
