Default How to make this bow...

For the life of me I can not figure out how to make a basic bow! I can make twisted bows, pinwheels, the big bows with spikes and surround loops, but figuring this bow out is going to be the death of me! lol I have the Brilliant Bowmaker templates; is there someway to make these with those templates? I have attached an example pic below. By the way, if this is anyone's bow on here; I LOVE it!

it looks like a basic bow without tails to me ...I dont have the BBM, so I don't know how to make it with that, but I make it with my NBNG templates

Yeah, I do the split tails but with no tails to make that bow.

yup, that's how I do them too. These have been very popular for me lately for whatever reason. Love the one in the original post! Gorgeous ribbon.

Yeah. They're not as intimidating as they look. Its a TBB, but not as tall and as wide (just like the previous replier mentioned). Took me awhile to try it too, but its easy

I think you can make to tuxedo bows also and put them together to get the same look. I could be wrong. I have been meaning to try it out but I havent had much time.

These are the instructions I use. except my bows dont come out "perky" like the pic. they come out just like the pics in the link. I'm not sure why, maybe just how I'm pulling them. Hope this helps!
