so you are saying to use a 2 inch by 12 inch.... and I am assuming you mean to then do up a whole bunch and sew then in half.. kinda like a bow..?
I found these instructions and im trying to go based off this except do it full

I think 12 inches is going to be way too big.. however when I follow the instructions I find that it looks a bit better but... these instructions say to use 6 strips, (way to thin for me, doesn't look like the other picture) so I used 12, then did another set of 12... but for whatever reason the colors blend too much and don't stick out like the ones in the picture. when I try more than 1 strip of color together.. say 3 of each color it looks better but still to thin.. maybe im using the wrong kind of Tulle? or maybe im just being really picky...? I just thought there might be someone who could explain the whole process from beginning to end on how to make the Tulle base... the spikes on top and all I can figure out but the Tulle is just not turning out right for me..
