Not sure if you are still looking for a way to make the same bow as the one you saw on that Etsy listing. Do you remember a thread about making itty bitty bows and LilRedSmiles shared her tutorial? It's basically wrapping the ribbon around your fingers twice, pin the middle, the spread the bows out? Use the same method, just don't twist the ribbon. Just spread out the "wings" flat. Cut the tails short enough to the middle, and they won't show. You will get the X effect that you want.

Here's the link to that thread.
