Default 3/8" twisted or boutique bows

What's the biggest twisted or boutique bow you can make with 3/8" ribbon? Got any photos? links to your store?
All of my searches turn up some itty bitty bows and then they jump to the larger bows made with 5/8" or 7/8" ribbon.
I'm looking for a good bow to offer my customers that uses 3/8" but is bigger than 1-3/4". Any suggestions?

you can do stacked bows with all 3/8" I do a twisted on top, a few spikes and then another twisted on the bottom. Haven't had a chance to take a picture though.

This bow is adorable!!! Are the two twisted bows different sizes? It looks like the bottom one is slightly bigger, right? I would love to try something like this :-)

Do you use the Gator bite for this? My fingers can't seem to grip the smaller ribbon to make these kind of bows. UGH. Do you use the figure 8 method for the fold? I just need to keep practicing.

No i just free hand my bows i dont use the figure 8 i use the mark and fold type method but i just eyeball it, what i do is bring the needle and thread up the middle then i put it over the top of the bow and pull it straight down, that gives me my first crease then i flip it over and turn it upside down (holding the first crease in place) and again just pull the thread down to make the next crease then i wrap it around a bunch of times and voila

How big is the top bow - about 2.5"? That could work. I want to keep it simple, so i probably won't add the layers, but that's a great pic of the twisted bow I'm hoping to offer my customers. Thanks for posting!
