This has to be done with a machine! How could you ever do this much by hand and get it so perfect? I don't have a crimper so I can't try it. But if anyone does find out...please let me know. I will buy a crimper if it does this!

Very cool, but I agree that a machine is the way to go! I can't imagine taking so much time to create so many folds! YIKES!

Does anyone know of a source to purchase the crimped ribbon? I have been all over the net and can find nothing . THanks for your help.

I've also looked -- either my Google-Fu is weak, or it just doesn't exist commercially. Maybe manufacturers make their own? Kind of like korked ribbon. Hey... if the crimping iron idea works, you could be the premier Hip Girl suppler of crimped ribbon!

Would a scrapbooking crimper work? Like this:

There is NO WAY this is done by hand. They sell them for 3.95 so no way they are putting much time into them. I don't think the paper crimper would work. I don"t think the ribbon would hold the crimp that well just running it through the crimper.

I think you're right. You would need heat to set the crimp.

Is anyone with a crimping iron willing to try this idea? Pretty please? I don't have a pony in this show, but now I'm really curious.

I would think they would at least be buying the ribbon already crimped if not buying the whole bow from China or something. There's no way they could crimp that by hand (even using a paper crimper) and be making any money on them. That's insane!

I haven't had a hair crimper since I was at least 8, but I don't think I've ever seen any that would make the crimps that small.

Hmmm......

On the warning it says: Made in China!!

Note to Parents: Our hair bows are handmade to exacting standards but may vary slightly in color and size within the same product.
WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3. The hair bow is not a toy. Made in China.
