I don't have the regular BBM templates, but I do have the twisted and the surround, and love them both! Like other ppl have been saying, it actually helps to use the gator bite in conjunction with BBM! Really cuts down on time (and stress!). I seriously was horrific at making bows before, but with both of these, no problem!

The salon clips don't work too bad, except with the Gatorbite, it helps make your creases look REALLY fab. Supposedly you don't have to retie (if you are tying off) because they don't crease right with the gatorbite. I just ordered mine on Wednesday night, so I'm hoping i get it in the mail tomorrow.

You know I was playing with it last night, and you can tie the twisted bow right on the twisted template. I didn't stitch it or anything, just put a thin piece of sheer ribbon across the center of the template and clipped it to hold it in place, used the quick and easy fold, then tied the sheer ribbon in a knot with the ribbon still on the template and voila! it worked! I am so doing this for all my twisted bows.

Let me know if anyone tries it!
