Default OTT opinions & help please!

I am a little confused because both of these bows are listed as OTT bows but to me they are totally different…… not that I do not think both are awesome. So in your opinion which one do you consider OTT and why? I also have a pic of one of my bows where I am TRYING to make a OTT, but to me it is just a big mess & do not know what to classify it as

I think an OTT bow can be different to everyone. some people think if it has spikes then its OTT or that it has to have marabou and tons of layers of ribbon, just depends on the person. I think if it has alot going on then its probably OTT. I think your bow could be called OTT for sure. It's very cute!!

When I think of OTT bows--I think of BIG (5" and bigger) and lots of layers. But everyone has their own opinions!!!

Yours looks good!!!

Dont be confused. just be yourself. You dont have to make bows like everyone else. Being different will set you apart. make the customer want to come to you because you sell a creative & unique bow. Of course there are basics to learn that are always good to know but you can take those and put your own twist on them. I see everyone making bows now around my area and many are just plain jane bows so I have to keep pushing myself to come up with something new. or take the plain jane and add some sparkle and fun.
