To avoid sharp end of wire sticking out of wired ribbon, gently pull back the end of the ribbon to expose the wire, cut wire a fraction of an inch shorter than ribbon and gently pull ribbon end forward to cover exposed wire, “voila” no more unsightly sharp wire ends !

Thank you for this video! For some reason I have been struggling with my bows. This video us easy to understand so now I am going to practice, practice!

Hi Maria! Unfortunately there is nothing that can be done about the wires. That just means the wire is heavier than the ribbon itself. You can cut the ribbon at an angle, and then if the wire is really bad, you can dip the edge where the wire is just a bit in hot glue, but not much or it will mess up the ribbon. Hope that helps!

Great video but, one thing that never seems to be addressed are the wires! I love wired ribbon but the ends always have the sharp wires poking out. What can be done to prevent that?
Thank you!

I have listened to several bow makers on videos, without a doubt
you are the best Laura. Easy to follow, confidence in your voice,
and you showed the different steps without making a 30 minute
tape. Make this a great day!!
