Default making your own templates for bows?

My very first post!!!

I've been a lurker for ages, and I LOVE this site, so I figured I should probably post something and not be such a stranger. I have three girls and make them bows etc all the time, and also for my friends. I've looked at different templates etc out there, and figured it would be much easier to just make my own. To all your pros out there, what have you found has worked the best for you? Is there a place on here where instructions are posted so I don't bug anyone with questions that have been asked a hundred times? (the search isn't working for me for some reason.) I am interested in making many different styles and types, so a good nudge in the right direction would be wonderful. Thanks all, I greatly appreciate it!!

ETA: I guess its my second post. LOL

I used X-ray film to make some sizes. My Sis-in-Law is a radiologist so she gives me the mess-ups... I double them up also. I also bought NBNG starter set that included a few. The search is kind of weird. Dont feel bad asking questions. There are LOTS of nice ladies here that love to help and answer questions.

Have Fun!

Thanks everyone! I've found some great templates and am going to attempt to make some today from a really thick cardboard that I have. If they work, I'm going to make some heavy duty ones.

I use old cricut cutting mats...I know it sounds strange, but the ones that aren't sticky enough for me to use anymore, I cut them up into templates...Its great because they are kinda tacky they help hold the ribbon

What a great idea! I'm glad you posted this because one of my dogs just chewed up my brand new 24" mats! It was only one corner but still I was very upset.

right on... can you share where you found templates? I am also trying to make my own templates. I can't afford to buy them at the moment
