Excuse my messy glass from all the clip lining I do (I wholesale them and looks like it was a black ribbon cutting day lol)









then I just add the bow



and whatever other elements I need and.....




3blessings, at what point do you make your V cuts? I can see in pic 5 that there seem to be some on the right side, but the others haven't been cut yet. Is it best to make the cuts before or after you put them on the bow?

SOme people make V-cuts before they put the bow together and some like to do it after it's all completed. I like to do them before because that is how learned in the beginning.

I've yet to tackle a bow like this but always wondered if you make the bow to fit the spikes or the spikes to fit the bow?

I make the spikes to fit the bow. It would be wise to jot down your measurements on a notepad incase you have to go back and use it as a guide.

I measure them up next to my bow for length then cut them from the roll....I make the v cuts AFTER the bow it put together so that they are the right size AND they are even with eachother.....so I dont have to have it perfect until the bow it all done

That makes sense. If you put the spikes under the bow, then you can tell if they're too long. But how do you make them even with each other? Just by looking, right? Or is there another way?
