Default Stacked bow/upside down bottom

When you make your stacked bows with spikes and loops, do you turn your bottom bow upside down and then stack your layers on top? My instructions say to do that, but was wondering what method you guys use. I'm assuming that it's upside down so that the spikes lie flat on the backside of the bow when it's upside down.

I've heard both. I don't because the other bowchicks' pics that I've seen don't. When I tried it, it looked funny smooshed on a bowcard. It makes sense though. It is concave and the head is convex. They are complimentary shaped.

I don't flip mine. I tried it once and it just didn't look right to me... I dunno, guess it's another one of those things that's a personal preference

I like this idea. I bet it looks super cute. Okay, I will try it using a pinwheel, too.

I don't because if I do the bottom bow will be smashed when putting on the hair. I like the way the spikes curl up a little bit in between two layers. In fact it helps hold the arrangement of the spikes more secure. Don't squeeze the center too much though - it'll be chunky anyway and you'll hardly see it, so it doesn't matter - I've heard quite a few bow makers said they hate the center being thick and I've been asking myself what's the difference - you won't see it clearly in a stacked bow while being used anyway. If you squeeze it too hard at the center it'll ruin the shapes of the surrounding and the spikes.
I've seen pinwheel for the bottom bow and it looks nice. Personally I prefer 1.5" twisted boutique for the bottom, it gives more volume and a 3D sense, it depends on personal taste I guess...
