Default OTT/Stacked Bows

I'm wanting to make some OTT and stacked bows and I have a question about the base bow...I hope this doesn't sound stupid! LOL. I have the BBM templates and I have just purchased the NBNG templates so I could make different bows. While reading the PDF file from NBNG and looking at the pics, is the base bow of OTT and stacked bows upside down? I know it's a twisted bow, but do you flip it so the back of the bow is facing up then stack your layers? I just want to make sure I am reading and seeing it correctly! Thanks for any help!

I think the bow itself and the surrounds and everything are fabulous!!!! I just think the tulle and spikes are a bit long. Shorten those some and I think you've got a winner!

Very pretty. I agree that the spikes and tulle should be shorter.

Really?! Oh man, LOL. I thought OTT had long ol' spikes. At first I made them 6 inches long and they looked too short, so I made the second set 8 inches long. I thought the tulle was a bit long, though! I wanna make bows like this:

Typically (or atleast the ones I've seen) have spikes but not quite that long.

The picture you linked (and I may be mistaken) But I believe is a "spikey bow" with a half twist ontop of it. Someone on here (or maybe it was etsy) has a tut for the spikey bow. I have that tut.

It looks pretty easy, but I don't know how she separated the spikes like that? When I do spikes they're all bunched up together and her's are pull apart more in the center. KWIM?
