Default TOTT, TNT, HANDS - Used them all!

I hope this is the right spot for this thread. Mod, Please feel free to move it if it should be in another category.

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.

TOTT = Tricks of the Trade bowmaker purchased from the Ribbon Retreat.

TNT= Top Notch Template from nobownogo.com

You are not the only one. I can only get those you see on the pix by hand with fairly consistent results (and only 3 inch or more! LOL). The rest of the bows are a mystery to me till I got the templates.

Bingo! The flat surface allows the loops to cover the top bow nicely. I have 2 bows, same construction, but the loops are done both ways, and the end results is very different. Let me go find the pix and I will post it online.

Thanks for sharing. I only have the Gator Bite.
I want to get TNT, but these days I have to watch what I spend.
