Default Re: Stacked bow/upside down bottom

If you squeeze it too hard at the center it'll ruin the shapes of the surrounding and the spikes.
I've seen pinwheel for the bottom bow and it looks nice. Personally I prefer 1.5" twisted boutique for the bottom, it gives more volume and a 3D sense, it depends on personal taste I guess...
I really like the 3D look, like you said, of the twisted bow. I was going to try the pinwheel bottom, but I'm going to do it with the twisted instead. I'll make it with the bottom bow facing up. I see what you're saying about the bottom bow getting smashed if it's upside down. Great tip about not squeezing the center too much. Lynn, your stuff is ALWAYS amazing.

You're like the queen of the stacked bow. Every time I see your bows I turn green with envy. You're so talented!
