Default Best bow template for a beginner

Hi! I have just recently started making bows and realized I'm not very good at it. haha Anyways, I was wondering if anyone could recommend a bow template for me. There are so many different ones, I would like to get one that I know has worked for people. Thanks!!

I don't use templates, so I can't recommend any, but I believe these threads have some helpful tips/discussions on what some people like best:

i asked about this recently and it seemed the consensus that the NBNG (no bow no go) templates were pretty popular i have been making simple bows as well as headbands and ribbon sculptures for about a year now but have not had good luck with the bows so i ordered these templates cant wait til they get here and i get to try them out the instructions i got through ebook when i ordered are great in my opinion they alone were worth the cost. good luck hope you find something that works for you!

You won't like my answer. I bought NBNG and BBM . I like the NBNG for all the bows except the twisted boutique. I could not get that bow to save my life. I was thinking about selling my BBM and then realized that I get my best twisted with it. So know I am stuck with both lol!

Love the NBNG (no bow no go) templates. Although I make most of my bows freehand, I do use it for some. I also have the BBM, but I'm not as happy with how my bows turn out on that.

when i was looking at which one to order i was thinking that same thing so sometime this week i am planning on ordering the twisted templates from BBM and not the whole package and who knows maybe i will like those better and end up having to order those too
