Question BBM Question

I an mew to the BBM (Brilliant Bowmaker) templates and i was testing them out this week and am confused by something, wondering if someone could help me out:

you know how there is a line on the template (for classic) that you line up your center crease of ribbon with when you fist lay it on the template? well, is it suppose to be exactly "center" on the template? mine seems to be shifted to the left side on all 3 size templates... im so confused..

love my kids DD 4 and DS 1 and our precious new baby girl born 3/15/12!!

I`ve always wondered the same thing about mines LOL although I always use the line to place the center of the ribbon I do crease it in the center and not where the line is because if I do I end with a bigger loop on the left side of the bow

Thanks girls!

The line is supposed to be off center - has to do with the difference in the angles of the last two folds. Mathematical thing.

But you do crease it in the center of the slot - not where the mark is.

Hope that helps!! Let me know if you have more questions!
