Question boutique fold

I don't know exactly how to ask this but here it goes. I have the basic idea of the boutique fold but my question is How do you get your loops to look I guess you could say loopy or with that cute wave that stands up so nice? Mine seem to be too flat. I have seen some beautiful bows on here and I get so jealous. Great job!!

Thank you! I usually use heavy spray starch. Is that the best?

It depends on how 'crunchy' you want your bow to be. I know some people want it hard rock so it keep its shape but some other can't stand hard bow. I use normal starch only and sometimes diluted fabric stiffener.
If you pay a bit attention to the angle in the middle when you fold the ribbon and make it almost 90 dgree and be carefull when creasing the middle you will have your loops 'pop'!
