Hello, have a question and hoping someone knows what I'm talking about.
My boyfriend took down his curtains a few years back to have them dry-cleaned. Now he has asked me to help put them back up so I thought ok, no problem lol. He says they used to have poufs in the corners. The window is big, having what are called magic swag holders,,,there are 4 for the window. Here is what they loook like. http://www.bedbathkitchenetc.com/c/Curtain_Rod_Accents/Wamsutta_Magic_Swag_Holder_1352899.htm
Ok, so what I need to know is if someone knows just how to make the poufs. I know the site says the instructions are on the back of the packaging but I'm not able to get to the store to check this out. Maybe someone has an idea as to where we could get an instructional.pictorial view of how to do these so they'll look good. I tried but the poufs were scarey lol. Any help on where to look would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Trina - All you do is pull the fabric across the window, taunt, then pull excess fabric through the "U" shape and play with it until you get the desired shape "puff" or rosette. To help hold the fabric tight, you can also add a cable tie to the corners where the fabric goes through the swag holder, attaching it to the holder itself. This will help hold the fabric in place. Hope this helps.
