I dont use any adhesive. It just seems I cant hardly pull the thread tight enough to form the creases because of the bulk.

I would love for you to be able to get it right. It is a great feeling to be able to master the TBB. After that you can come up with own personal technique of making it.
I know, right? I told Maxine once how I totally wanted to throw myself a party when I "got" it! I read someone yesterday, too, who had just made her first one that she felt was good enough to sell and she thought she should sell it for like $150! I was totally laughing about that one.

It does get easier. . . but it never gets less fun!

It took me almost a YEAR to get my bows looking the way I wanted them to look! Don't even know why I stuck with it, LOL. Guess I was obsessed. Now it's easy-peasy. I should post my early bows sometime...and to think I couldn't figure out why they didn't sell, haha. They were miserable!
