Default For layered bows, how do you get the spikes to lay flat?

I've made a few layered boutique bows but I notice that when I put the spikes on top of the big bottom bow, it tends to bend the spikes and they get lost/swallowed by the bottom bow and do not look nice and even like these....

Etsy :: shawnmu97 :: M2MG Beach Shack Boutique hair bows

Just posting that person's website as an example of what I am wanting my bows to look like.

Does my bottom bow need to be upside down (ie. opposite facing of the top bow)? If that makes sense. Here is an example of a bow I made for a friend. The spikes may not be long enough but they don't lay flat.

I tried putting a bow together and got the same problem so I just left the back bow off lol...guess it wasn't really layered anymore by me doing that..My bottom bow just kept pushing up on the spike and I wasn't really sure how to remedy that.

I too am interested if anyone has some tips!

Yeah, after I made the bows, I realized the spikes were a bit too short. They really shrink up after you tie them off. Anyway, I thought maybe doing the bows back to back would help them lay flatter. Just needed confirmation on that. Thanks.

What exactly is a spike, and where do you get it? Haven't tried any layered bows yet, but want to.

Thanks, I was thinking maybe they were little metal spikes, but couldn't figure out where they have been used......LOL!
