Default Re: how to make - like a twisted bow, but not really...

I am probably going to fail at trying to explain this, but I'll try. When doing a twisted, you end up with parallel (horizontal) ribbon at the back, and an "x" in the front. Instead of a tall skinny x ribbon (or a fat 8), like in a normal twisted boutique, make it flatter. The x would be shorter/wider, or a flatter 8 (or if you turned it sideways, a tall skinny 8).

Sorry if this doesn't make sense...
