I recently bought a bow maker at AC Moore. It has great instructions and is really easy to use with great results! It only cost 10.00 but I got a coupon out of my local newspaper for 50% off! If you don't have an AC Moore near you try Michaels Craft store or maybe any place like it might carry it. Good luck.

It's really not very hard to do, you just need someone to show you how. We have a free "how to" posted in the newsletter archives on our site "How To Tie a Floral Bow" At: http://www.FloralClasses.com

If you can't figure it out, be sure to sign up for our email newsletter. Coming in August 2004, we'll introduce our newest product: MyBowMaker. You can even bookmark http://www.MyBowMaker.com and check back with us on availability or will let you know via email announcement. It's the easiest thing you'll ever do. It even holds the ribbon for you, just make a couple of twists and insert the wire, it even bends the wire for you, just pull the ribbon out and twist the wire in the back for a PERFECT bow.

Good luck!

I just found this and it was very helpful. Plus you can save it on your computer very easily since it is a pdf file. Hope this helps you.
