You need 2.25" ribbon or 3 inch ribbon.

Alright, I have tried and tried again. Here is what they are wanting....

My twisted bows are too straight up and down. I can't figure out how she gets them spread out so much. Looking through her pics some look twisted and some don't. I have no idea really which way they are wanting other than not poofy. Haha

Have you tried *not* twisting them?? If you make a standard boutique with some added length built in, you can get the look you're going for with the 1.5 or the 2.25" ribbon. I also think part of the look is having enough length on the "ends" and having them in the right places...basic boutiques look all wrong if their ends aren't right. TBB's like yours don't sell here (Memphis, TN) for me either But generally my customers will buy anything standard boutique or pinwheel.

Those look like mine. If you can't figure it out I can always sell you one.
Have you tried adding more ribbon length?

Angela! That bow is gawjuss!!!
I am still playing around with it. My loops are either too twisted or too blah. I haven't found the middle line in order for my loops to look beautiful like yours. How big do you make your bows like that? Are they the big southern bows?
