Default Suggestions for adding tulle to an OTT bow?

I have a customer who requested an OTT twisted boutique bow with a ballet theme and she would like tulle added to the bow. I have no experience with tulle and have searched and searched for the past couple of days, but couldn't find anything. I was thinking of maybe fanning it out, but not sure if it would look better between the bow and loops or behind the loops. Should the tulle be cut into circles or just strips? Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated. TIA!

I have added tulle to a few OTT bows and I usually fold it into strips (since it is so thin) and put it with my spikes. I attached a pic so you can see what I am talking about. HTH!

Here's an old thread were I posted a custom request with added tulle and feathers.

I used a 6x6 square and folded corner to corner until it formed a full spike. Then I just layered the different colors and stitched them together.

I think a small tulle puff in the center, under a bling center would be cute!
