big 4.5-5" bows???
 
hi ladies... i learned to make twisted boutique bows first and now all my bows have that look...i want to make large boutique bows but even if i dont twist as much they still dont look good. does anyone have a tutorial or any suggestions? also the biggest bow i can make is a 3.5" when finished. does anyone know the measurments i should use to get a 4.5-5" bow? TIA

Re: big 4.5-5" bows???
 
I just make them like I do the smaller ones, for some reason they don't look cute using 1:5 ribbon, so if I make them with 1.5 ribbon I stack a smaller one on them, if I'm not going to stack I use a thicker ribbon like 2 or even 3 inch ribbon, also I shape them the way I want them, starch them like its going out of style lol and then nbake for 25 minutes on 250 degrees...and then starch again! The bigger ones tend to be super floppy, so if you just take advantage of starch it should turn out wonderful :)

Oh thanks i never thought of using ribbon wider than 1.5. I also use templates and the biggest i have is a 6 so my biggest bow is not as big as i want it to be. For some reason all my bows come out with that twisted boutique look and im going for the basic boutique, idk i think i need practice, maybe i need to learn to make them without the template.. lol:smile:
