I got busy last night and did all these using TOTT, TNT and of cos my hands (and good ol' Gator bite). And just thought I would share them with you.

Yellow bows - These are made using 3 inch TNT templates. They are really easy to make.
Blue bows, 2nd image - I only managed to make 2 bows using the bow maker before I gave up. I ended up with ribbons everywhere (was trying to work off the spool), tangles and a mess.
Blue bows, 3rd image - These are the same bows I attempted using the bow maker, but decided to twist them by hands instead. It was faster and easier.
Loops, 4th image - First set of loops are done twisted boutique style. Second set uses TNT method. I tried to stack bows on them and they gave me surprisely, very different results.

Did them all under 3 hours with trials and errors.

You're not talking about the Brilliant Bow Maker right? I just bought that one a couple days ago.

TNT works for me.

I think it is really personal preference. I know some ladies who have successfully used TOTT bow maker, but I am hopeless at that. But their manual is great for ideas and inspiration tho.

I am still waiting for my BBM... international shipment takes quite a while. (Yes... I am nuts... I bought BBM, TOTT, TNT, but it was my birthday, I get to go shopping! )

I am sure BBM is great. I have read the reviews and everyone seems to love it!

Oops! Forgot to reply... the mess was with TOTT bow maker. Somehow, I just cant get it right. Even the sizes confuses me. Maybe it is just me. LOL!

Here they are. 2 bows of the same construction, but the surround loops are made differently. I find flat loops less messy.

So the second bow is the one made from TNT then? If so, will it help me with my surrounds? I can't do them evenly and would love my bows to look like that!

Hiya

No. TNT does not provide templates for the surround bows. But Devon did provide very clear and easy instructions on how to twist them. You can also find the instructions here. Free Instructions: Loopy Surround-a-Bow Surrounds Surround

I made my own bow template, I took a plastic cutting sheet that I got from the $ tree, I measured how big I wanted the bow to be and cut the plastic wit a slit in the middle. I just wrap the ribbon around and sew up the middle.
