Default First Bow Post!

Okay, I've finally decided to post and see if all you wonderful ladies can help me improve my bows!

Thanks in advance!

I think you did a great job. Maybe add a few more spikes, but I wish mine looked like that

Something that might help the shape of your twisted boutique is to work on your center crease. I had a hard time when I first started with my bows looking kind of off, & then I learned that when I made better creases, my bows always looked better.

Yeah I was thinking maybe 2 more spikes but wasn't sure if it would be too much

Yeah, thats the part I'm working on, getting those creaces just right is tricky!

It looks good but I do agree on the crease. Try a 3 fold crease (like an accordian) and secure it a little tighter.
