Slightly...I cut my spikes in a v shape too. But I tend to cut mine too short all the time

Super cute baby and bow, but yeah, I would trim them-the bow kind of gets lost.

I'd say trim the spikes a little too. Cute baby!! I don't think she looks that excited to be your model though.

It's super cute, I would agree though, trim the spikes a little. I also like them in a V.

measure your completed bow first then cut your spikes 2" longer

also...definately make "v" cuts for your spikes.

Thanks, She does not care for the braided headbands. She started with FOE and that is still about all I can get her to wear. I just started adding spikes to my bows and am playing with a few techniques. I think my fav so far is "V"'s though. This particular one forms a V out of the 4 ribbons ends on each side but I think its prettier when each ribbon is V.
Thanks Again
