Default Cheer Bow Folding Technique

I have been making cheer bows for five or six years now. The method I use hasn't changed much. I am an "old school" folder who began with the No Bow No Go tutorial. Here's the thing, I have never been entirely happy with the look of the bow's loops. I tried adding 2" of ribbon to the ribbon length and making my loops and inch larger and while I like the look, I guess I am just not "Wowed" by it.

I am looking for that really puffy look to the loops and mine seem to be flat looking. Attached are samples of my work (orange = 28" ribbon length, blue = 30" ribbon length). Looking for some suggestions if there are any!

Thanks bunches!
