Default Anyone ever use this???

I found this on ebay by accident but it looks interesting. Has anyone ever used it or something similar to it. Those tiny bows are so time consuming for me. Any other ideas to help my process, what works best for you?

Thanks,
Susan

I am curious about these too. What a neat find. Might have to get one for only $6.

I haven't seen it either. I would like to see more detail about how you are suppose to use it. I am a little lost, but interested in the idea.

I haven't bought the TOTTS yet, does the bowmaker allow you to make the tiny bows? I'm pretty good at doing 2inch and above size bows but anything smaller and my fingers get all confused, lol.

Thanks,
Susan

I also had a hard time with tiny bows. I made some small bows using 3/8" ribbon. They are about the width of an alligator clip or smaller (maybe about 1.5" wide). It took me forever cause I couldn't get the cute fold in the middle and it would fall apart as I was trying to tie it. Anyway, somebody gave me an awesome idea. Before you are ready to make your cute creases use an alligtor clip (double prong) in the middle to hold it in place. Use a needle and thread and poke a hole in the middle of the bow. Bring the needle around the top and through the alligator clip and pull to make the crease! I poke my needle through once or twice again and tie! So much easier and now I can make them pretty fast...
