Re: Anyone know how to make this flower?

Hmm, well I agree, looks like it's just a Kanzashi flower with lots of longer petals. Hip Girls has a tut for Kanzashi flowers you could use and then just experiment with different sizes/lengths....

Re: So I was wondering.....

Well, this is all good to know. I never really thought about the fact that using licensed ribbon to make bows and then selling them would be illegal. I guess that should probably be obvious lol. Good...

Re: A tutu dress with a lattice weave pattern

Hmm, I may have to try out this basket weave style next time I make a tutu dress. Looks like it might be easier said than done lol.

Re: Do not shop rabom!

Re: Do not shop rabom!

This sucks for me, I order mostly from TRR and HBC and noticed when I ordered from HBC the other day shipping was TWICE as much...that explains it. I think it's ridiculous tbh. I have a difficult...

Re: How do you secure your bows?

I used to just tie all my bows with elastic cord but I think they hold up better sewing them so I've switched to that. It may take me a teeny bit of extra time but I find my bows stand up better that...

Re: What do you Tie Korkers with?

I tied my first few and didn't like how they looked and was worried about them getting pulled apart by wee ones so I always sew mine now. I find it easier actually, and they look better, imo.

Re: Attaching bows/flowers to headbands - which do you prefer?

I find it's 50/50 with my customers. I have some who really prefer getting the interchangeable headbands so they can get a bunch of headbands to interchange with the many bows/clips/flowers they buy....

Re: Ribbon Width Poll--I use *** Inch Wide Ribbon Most

I use 7/8" for my bows most often.. 5/8" has just been a pain for me with the styles I make and most people aren't interested in larger bows with 1.5" so haven't had much need to use it.

Re: Foe headbands? Advice please!

I charge $4.00 for my interchangeable FOE bands and then depending how many flowers/embellishments I add and how they are priced without the band I increase the price. I have some up to $10 right now.

Re: I hate to ask but I have to....

I remember it being a lot busier when I first joined as well. I admit, I have been quiet, and mainly because I haven't had much time to get on the forums in the first place, but I'm trying now. :)

Re: What's the big craze in the bow world

I agree, I've seen a lot of feathers going on lately, not just Ostrich, but all different kinds! I've been seeing a lot more OTT bows lately as well, but these are typically not as popular in my area.

Re: Specials, Deals, Promotions Etc.

I do % off once in a while, or if you spend this much you get this free. You could do quantity discounted pricing as a sale also. Buy 1 it's this much, Buy 3 it's this much, Buy 5 it's this much.
