I've never heard of flipping the bow over. I can't wait to try it to see how it works out.

My over the top bows are just BIG and full of ribbon. I do a pinwheel for the bottom so more stuff can fit in between


They are all over 5.5 inches

I dont make long spikes tho. Just normal

I was thinking about doing a pinwheel bow for the base bow, but I haven't mastered that bow yet

Okay, I have a question...so you don't flip your bow? How do you stack bows on top of each other without the bottom bows loops flopping out of shape? I'd rather not do "bottom to bottom", but I REALLY want to make over the top bows! I could use as many tips as possible...and I have done A LOT of searching online and on this forum, so please no one take me as being lazy because I definitely am not. I always research before asking for help

I think it looks pretty good, except that the spikes are too long in my opinion.

I do a pinwheel too b/c i think the twisted is just too big when I look at it. I feel like the bow is going to collapse!

As far as the spikes, I like mine to be about 1/2" or so out from the main bow (does that make sense?).
IMO, long spikes looks kinda wierd. I think of ott mean the bow has lots of loops, little mini bows on the sides of your loops, maybe some maraboo and/or bling. Just something that's more fabulous than a regular bow. kwim?

I hope that helps. I'm not an expert, by any means!

I do love the main bow! You did perfect on it! great job!

Thank you!! You made a lot of sense and have helped me a lot on this. I don't feel so lost. How do you do your pinwheels? I bought NBNG and haven't been able to do the pinwheels. I think I'll practice more at naptime. I agree that a twisted for the base is too big, that's why I wanted to do a pinwheel or some other big flat bow!
