The Perky Bowz Template wasn't helpful to me at all. I got it with my gator bite. If you want it, I'll mail it to you! lol

Yes, here is a link to Part 1.

I have reviewed these instructions several times without actually trying them. As detailed as they are they don't seem to guide you on how to angle the ribbon as you fold.

Am I missing something? Maybe I didn't read this thread right(?)
I must have remembered the price wrong. For $22.50 plus shipping and handling maybe it's worth it.

I don't know why I'm so resistant to getting the Gator Bite since I'm not having the same luck with the Sally Clip that others have. It works ok, but not great. I guess I'm afraid the Gator Bite won't be worth the difference in price.

I'm going to get a gator bite even though I'm having success with a sally clip. I think the gator bite will have a tighter hold and I like that idea. The clamp must be stronger because it's not meant to be put in human hair (like a sally clip is).

Maxine I LOVE my GB!!! I tried the sally's clips and had some success with them but the gb clamps down much better and doesn't slip and move so much when tying. I don't use the tying ribbon that comes with it though. I tried it and it was much too bulky IMO. I use plain white embroidery floss.

Thanks for sharing m2s! That's great to hear I've had success with using organza to tie off but maybe I'll try the floss(?)

Tottally agree! I buy Ms. Lydias (I think is the brand name) embroidery thread. It comes on a GIANT roll for a few bucks. Im still using the first roll I ever bought and am no where near done with it. (and I waste A LOT of it lol)
