I don't use wire when making my loop bows. I use thread. Plain regular thread. I read a tutorial from a website, man the name is a blank, if I remember I'll let you know. But what you can do is take some thread. Put in your hand and stretch the length of your arms so you have one long piece of thread. Do this three more times. Thread your needle with all four strands of thread. Make the ends even and then tie your knot at the end of the thread. Then you thread your ribbon and wrap onto your french clip. I hope that made sense. This is a link to a lady who makes bows and she does a wonderful job in my opinion, I've learned alot just watching her videos. She shows how to make other bows as well.

I hope this helps.

I just use floral wire (only for my loopy bows though). It's cheap and you can get it really tight!

Yes, Michaels has 26 or 30 gauge. Either size works. 1.99 for 100 yds I think. I won't use thread as I have had customers send me other companies' bows to repair that used thread or even fishing line to secure loops. I will also use dental floss, but not if it will be touching a metal edge.
