Okay, I am by no means a twisted bow expert, but here's a pic of 3 bows, all made with 7/8" ribbon, all apx. 3" wide (within 1/8") but they look quite a bit different. I made them all without tails, like yours, if you want to add tails I'd add 1 1/2-2 1/2 inches (totally personal preference!). Just by changine the length slightly, you can change the look to suit whatever you prefer. Please excuse my bows in the raw & I hope this explains my babbling a little better, lol!

Oh & the lengths of the ribbon I used for each bow is written underneath them.

I am reluctant to touch them.. I'll try and get past that

You've got it! Just pull the top two loops on your bow a little up & inward, play around with it, but that's a perfect bow in the making!

Ok, here is my 4th try at a twisted boutique. I don't want to get discouraged, but I hope I'm on the right track at least.

This bow was freehand, no pins... just folded and slipped into the sally clip. Then, I tied it. I did not manipulate it.. or fuss with it. I just pulled it out and took a pic.

I wanted you to see a raw image to see if I at least got the ribbon going the right way.
