Have you tried *not* twisting them?? If you make a standard boutique with some added length built in, you can get the look you're going for with the 1.5 or the 2.25" ribbon. I also think part of the look is having enough length on the "ends" and having them in the right places...basic boutiques look all wrong if their ends aren't right. TBB's like yours don't sell here (Memphis, TN) for me either
But generally my customers will buy anything standard boutique or pinwheel.
