Default Before and After Gator Bite pictures?

Okay, I think I am about ready to give in and get the gator bite, but not before I see some before and after pictures! lol. Does anybody have before and after pictures so I know this thing really works? I can't get my folds right and I am so frustrated. The largest ribbon I use is 7/8" so maybe that is my problem...but I don't like much larger.

well most of us who have the gator is simply because we can not get the fold by hand right. So gator is a MUST for me! without it the folds look plain.

Now I wonder if theres a difference between perfect hand crease and gator crease...

awesome. They look fabulous. Couple of questions about your bows if you don't mind. They are beautiful! I can sometimes get mine too look that good, but they don't hold their shape. They "bend" backwards and look uneven and funny. Do you spray yours? I tried spraying and microwaving before. They hold for like a day and then go back to how they were in the beginning.

Anyway, you sold me. Is it really that easy? You put your bow in the thing and tie and pull and it turns out like that?

I LOVE mine!!! The center is right everytime. I'm a huge fan of the 3 bumps Before the gator bite as you can see in the first pic the middle "hill" was always way bigger then the other 2. Now they are all 3 perfect

Now as far as my actual bow goes... I'm still working on it, but at least my creases are good.

Its really that easy. You make your bow and then clip your gator bite on and tie it off with either Floss, craft thread, upholstery thread or elastic thread. There may be other ways, but these are the methods I've heard of. I'm a huge fan of button craft thread.

I have used stiffener in the past, but I don't anymore. These weren't baked or anything.
