I can get the general shape (same as I always do) but for some reason, I cannot get the darn thing to twist in the same way and poof up like hers does! Can anyone suggest what I might be doing wrong?

The little green bow is the one she gave me, aka "the goal." LOL The other one is my general style. Thanks!!!

Welcome to the forum. The green bow looks like a semi-twisted boutique that has been smooshed quite a bit.
