For stacked bows I generally use 1.5" for my base bow and a 7/8" for the topper. I mix 1.5" and 7/8" for the spikes. Everyone does it different. |
For regular twisted bows, I stick with 1.5".
Also, I don't know what you mean by inside or outside ribbon but assume it won't matter in this case.
I don't use a template either. Only hands. I don't offer bows that look like the others around here. No "twisted" but just the old "boutique" style. I can tell you tho that either way you do them you will LOVE the 1.5. So much easier to fold and fun to work with!!
