Default Help me tie a bow

So I see all these perfect bows made of ribbon. The ribbon is only one sided but when tied the backside of the ribbon is in the inside of both sides ofthe bow that never happens when I tie a bow. I always have the plain backside showing on half the bow.

Please help!

Here is a picture of a bow I want to tie. If I did this one loop would be white (the backside) showing instead of how this one where all you can see is the zebra print

Are you tying it like you would a bow in a shoelace? If so that is why you are getting backside. I think that is a tails down bow or something like that. There is a post somewhere on here with tuts for all sorts of bows. You may want to purchase a tut like NBNG to get you going.
WHen you make bows like these it is not actually tying them it is folding methods that get the look you are looking for.
I don't have time to look right now as I am getting ready to take off out of town in the am to check on my grandmother who is in the hospital or I would try to find some links for you.
