Other than that I was going to choose "minor tweaking."

Hope that helps somewhat!

Hey everyone is entitled to their opioion and I welcome the CC. I am ok b/c I agree somewhat becasue I know it is not what it should be... about the center knot... it will have to stay for now b/c I do not want to mess it up anymore to try to change it, but I will always do that from now on or use solid. My V's stink b/c my scissors stink... I need to invest in some good scissors. Thanks you are sweet

YES! Go do that!! I have a fiskars RAZOR pair and it cuts through layers of ribbon like Butter! (pronounced BUTT-TA) Definitely good use of a Joann's, HL or Michael's coupon! I waited so long on buying a new pair, I was using my grandmothers. I bonked myself for waiting so long!

OH Forgot - Look at boutique bows that are from the side view, you should be able to see the bow loops on the side. I'll have to find a picture, much better than words.

Once again, this is PREFERENCE. Not everyone like things the same ways.

Here's a recent bow: sorry about the lighting, flash makes colors look off!

Evil scissors. When I was having spike issues, that was my problem, instead of cutting they were just shredding. My V's would end up horrible and my strait ends were well...I don't even know lol

I finally stole the good scissors out of our kitchen and gave up on trying to find my crafing scissors that got lost when I moved last month lol

I would suggest what somebody else has already said and use wider ribbon for your spikes, it fills in the gaps a little more.

I don't need to answer anonymously - I think it needs minor tweaking and you're there.

For me, the biggest things that stand out are:

- get the top and bottom bows closer to the same size
- wider ribbon spikes

both of which people have already mentioned, but also

- The top bow (at least, and maybe even the bottom bow a bit) needs to be folded in a more boutique style to get the look you're going for. Right now, the loops are flatter rather than "perky," like when you use a boutique fold, and I think that is a big part of that look on these stacked bows.

I still can't fold these right, but I still know HOW to do it - just the actual doing of it that I don't have yet, lol, so take my advice with a grain of salt!

Hope that helps some!

I don't think they stink at all. I really like the second one because it's got wider ribbon which is more my taste.
