Default Twisted?? Please critique!

I've been trying to master twisted bows and having a HARD time. I didn't put anything on the center cause I wanted you guys to see the bow raw and give your opinion. How's the shape? What should I change? Thanks for the help!

Wouldn't this be considered a Pinwheel? I don't know. I think it looks fine though

It needs to be pulled farther apart.

Thanks for the advice I've gotten so far. It's helpful.
Anybody else who can help, please do! I really want to master this bow. It doesn't really have the "twisted" look and I'm not sure what I'm missing. Maybe I should be using the measure and mark technique, but I don't know how. Does anyone know of a good tut?

You seem to have the fold right....whats not right is the angle...before sewing/tying you need to twist the loops to make an X. The easiest way to do this, is to put a clip on the back 2 ribbons, so they stay layered on top of each other, and then start twisting your top loops into an X....
get it?
probably not, i'm not good at explaining!

edit: watch this, it will show you how to twist the loops http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYm3z6xWY8I

OHHH Okay! I get where you are trying to do the twisted bow...Yes, they need to be more pulled apart. I bought the book from No Bow No Go and I love it! I have the templates and they are awesome! I used to make my own but these are so much better.

But- However...I do really like the bow you have done! That is my opinion though
