I think using 1.5" ribbon lends itself to not needing to be such an "x"... And a little more imperfect good luck! I can't wait to see pics!

Sorry if that was confusing.

You mentioned you didn't have a "perfect" twisted... I was just saying that you really can't mess up the twisted with 1.5" ribbon. It just seems to work better. I've worked with 7/8" and the top loops can look funny if the crease isn't done right. Do you use a template for the twisted? I recommend using one, even if you make it with cardboard...

Do you use the figure 8 method? If so, just fold the ribbon up (on the spool) like you're doing one side. Adjust until it would make the size of loops that you want, then fold the entire length back down the spool. In essence, cutting twice the first amount. Clear as mud?

I like to make 2 twisted boutique bows (about an 1" different in size) with 7/8" or 1.5" ribbon. Then, I do spikes with the same ribbon. You could add a little marabou too for a really over the top bow.

In the 1st pic I did three bows, but it starts to look pretty stacked.

You could also do a loopy bow with lots of extras.... Wish, I could upload better photos right now!
Those bows are HUGE! I love them!
