It looks like the back of the bow. Take a pic of the other side

Yep, that is the backside. See how in the middle where it is tied that the two ribbons are horizontal? The front side will have an x formed by the ribbons

I am looking at your photo and there is something with your crease that is not looking right and that is probably causing it to not look the way you are wanting it to. Practice on your creases a little bit and see if that will make a difference.

I'm not sure what she is referring to, but I think that while your bow is now facing the front that you need to rotate it. To me it looks like it's "standing" on it's side. And, believe it or not, it is possible to rotate it the wrong way and have it upside down.

When you turn it look for one "tail" to be in the lower left corner and one in the upper right.

Once you rotate it I think the "x" will look "big enough".

Of course, I'm relatively new to all of this and I could be off on this.
