Default Please recommend an easy bow or flower to make

Hi ladies I am out of ideas here. I need an easy flower or bow to make for a boutique here. They buy and sell the heck out of my kanzashi fabric flowers and headbands. They need (lol I decided they need) something new. Their store is stocked full of your regular bows so I don't want it to be a regular run of the mill bow (no boutique, pinwheel, etc.). They tend to prefer on the smaller side, around 2-1/2". I was thinking about the raggie bows but I know those can be time consuming and they absolutely kill my hands cutting that material. They do like felt stuff as well. Anyways I know I'm of no help to myself lol so thought maybe you ladies had some ideas. This store buys the heck out of the new and different. They probably have 2,000 bows in this store alone and that is no exaggeration. It's insane! OH let me add I am not a good bow maker (traditional kind) whatsoever!

I don't know how to post a link or whatever on here so I will have to write it like this:
There is a flower tut that is made with ribbon that is really simple and turns out really cute. It is under Hairbow Gallery-and it is titled Ribbon flower I just made.
HTH!!

I just wanted to suggest getting a pinking roatary cutter for making raggie bows .It would make it faster and alot easier on you hands then sissors. YOu can getting the pinknig blade from JOanns. it's where I got mine from.

I can't do the spike bows My friend sells spike bows to them! Out of curiousity though what are your wholesale prices on them? She might be interested in buying them from you. They need to be on a smaller size though. PM me.

I didnt' know I could get a rotary cutter for the raggie bows. That's a great idea. Those boogers killed me trying to do them by hand.

The ribbon flowers I think are to close to my fabric flowers. I think I might try one out though just to see since I've never seen one in person.
