The absolute BEST thing to tie the bows with is ORGANZA ribbon!!

I have tried EVERY method out there...literally! LOL

Thread breaks...silk/satin ribbon breaks if you tie too hard (i.e. ME)....etc...

The organza ribbon just works perfectly, in my opinion!

I buy the 1/8th inch size on the large rolls (and its super super cheap!).
You can get it from UB REALLY cheap!

I get this style: N17-010 in white.

I'm liking mine alot! It's nice to have a bow with even loops!
I made a boutique bow last night with 1.5 ribbon and looked at it and thought, finally it looks as good as the ones I see for sale!!

YES, please, please? I am waiting to see what the verdict is on this, before I buy yet another tool.

I still have to get some stuff to tie with and I guess I have to buy a sallys clip. I don't have the gator bite so I have been making smaller bows using an alligator clip. Not too bad, but I havent been using the right thing to tie with.

I have had my gator bite for over a year and I LOVE it!!! The directions you receive are great and I make a perfect bow every time. It is well worth the money and they are great to work with. My computer crashed not long ago and they resent me the PDF files with the bowmaking instructions even though it had been a year ago that I ordered.

I am new to the forum... Just joined this week but I have these and the gator bite. These are the only tools I use. I also recommend using the organza ribbon to tie off if you are using these!
