I just make them like I do the smaller ones, for some reason they don't look cute using 1:5 ribbon, so if I make them with 1.5 ribbon I stack a smaller one on them, if I'm not going to stack I use a thicker ribbon like 2 or even 3 inch ribbon, also I shape them the way I want them, starch them like its going out of style lol and then nbake for 25 minutes on 250 degrees...and then starch again! The bigger ones tend to be super floppy, so if you just take advantage of starch it should turn out wonderful

Oh thanks i never thought of using ribbon wider than 1.5. I also use templates and the biggest i have is a 6 so my biggest bow is not as big as i want it to be. For some reason all my bows come out with that twisted boutique look and im going for the basic boutique, idk i think i need practice, maybe i need to learn to make them without the template.. lol
