Question What type of base bow do you use?

I was just curious to see what type of base bow most of you use when making a stacked bow. Twisted facing up, twisted facing down, basic, or other. I normally make them with a basic bow, but then the tails stick out and I think it looks okay, but I don't know what other people think, and well...I just want to know what all of YOU do.

I use the large basic bow. I cannot make a twisted bow for the life of me.

I make all kinds of "stacked" bows but if you're specifically referring to the fancy boutique style then I always use a twisted boutique, facing up, starched firm and usually .5-1" bigger than my top bow.

I use a pinwheel bow that's similar in size to the layered bow I'm making.

Basic or pinwheel for me. I might have to try the twisted on bottom.....is that the same as a boutique bow?

I see a lot of people use boutique and twisted interchangeably, but to me, a true boutique is stacked a foofy....its more of a style than a technique, I guess you could say. That's just my opinion, tho! I really don't know!

I scanned through my photobucket, here's the closest comparison I have.

Stacked Boutique Bow


Twisted Boutique


Basic Bow (this of course is stacked)

I said other because it depends on what I am going to do with the other layers of the bow
