Default Suggestions for a bow please!

I made my daughter a tutu outfit for her upcoming b-day. Now, I would like to make her a hair bow to match. I'm simply wondering for suggestions on what to make. I need it to have three different ribbons on it, or even 4 (her tutu is 3 colors, but I also bought some 5/8 happy birthday ribbon). It would be best if they were 5/8, as I already have those, and I live in the middle of nowhere to get more. With that said, any suggestions on what kind of bow/s to make? I also plan to have some tulle in the bow as well (if that matters).

Hope I'm making sense. I'm very new to making hair bows, but excited to learn!

Thank you in advance!

imo . . . it's all personal preference, but the way you describe the multi-colored tutu . . . i'd prefer a one color bow with another color center/accent so as not to take away/distract from the tutu . . . but rather compliment the tutu.

however, others like the bow to be a spitting image of the outfit.

if you have some extra tulle, maybe adding that to the bow?

i'd do an all spikes bow . . . and add in the tulle . . .
