Default boutique bows?

Ok, to the point....I suck at boutique bows. I can make pinwheel, sculptures, and clippies. but when it comes to boutique bows, or twisted, I give up. How do you make them? Do you use french barrettes or alligator clips for more than 3 inches bows? I'm gonna have my first small church fair, but I don;t know which one should I use. ANy help of what should I bring and how many and prices? Should I just sell them by pieces or pair? thanks

Those are examples of the one that I wanna make.

For me the whole key has been in how much of an angle you make with your loops. In other words, when you cross the ribbon over there should be a 90 degree angle. The other key has been in the creasing. I could make it look good, and then when I tried to crease it, it all fell apart. Now I weave a straight pin through the layers and scrunch down and then tie.
