Default making loopy bows

when making loopy bows do you spread the ribbon before tying it down and then move on ? or do you do the whole bow then fluff?

That's what I do. It just makes it a little easier to hold on to.

Maybe your loops aren't long enough.

I had the same problem of my loops going back together. I think making longer loops helps and fluffing as I go instead of waiting till the end. Just my two cents!

You really gotta work the ribbon. If the loops are too small or there is more them 5 strands, it is more difficult. If you cut some of the loops it's easier and it gives it that crazy full look.

I mean after you have made all the loops cut in the middle of the loops so its not a loop anymore, but two ribbon sticking out.
Like this, it's not the best but it's an example.
