Everyone is different. One tut may work for someone but not for you. I have bought a bunch of tuts and looked over free ones Honestly....it is a learning curve you need to conquer. If you can show us a picture of how yours look maybe we can help. Just show us the unfinished bow front and back. Maybe we can see where you are having problems.

I agree w/Ronnie. Also, everyone has a different idea of what OTT is to them.

Honestly, it's just adding a little bit of this with a little bit of THAT.

Make it your own. I just think you need a good base bow and everything else is what makes it OTT. (Whether it be spikes, surround a bow, twists, marabou, organza...)

Have fun!

Well I bought a tut and I like it but I want more pizaz to them. I have the BBM templates so I made 70 something bows for a show I'm doing and I always draw a blank when it comes to finishing the bow.

I think if the simple bows are what you are good at then that is the best way to go. It might be hard to perfect your ott bows in 11 days? ya know.
If you have the basic bow down, and I guess you do with templates my best advice would be to look through pictures of other people's ott bows and get ideas for what you like with Marabou, extra ribbon, little accent bows, rhinestones and such. And then search it on here, there probably is a thread on how to add it to your bow! :] HTH

Well, I can make a funky loopy bow no problem and add stuff to it but I guess I'm wondering what is considered "over the top"

I agree w/pp..I bought an OTT tut and it was the biggest waste of $ I've ever spent.

It's all a matter of practice and throwing it all together. If you can do the funky bows..you got a leg up because I've seen many people myself included not be able to conquer them.

Good luck w/your show.

This is where you need to use your creative thinking. That pizzaz comes from your thoughts. You can add marabou, appliques, mini bows on the loops, surround loops, alot of spikes, a few spikes, hay yarn, bottle caps, buttons. There is a list of options you can do. Color combos.....go to the store and see what color combos you see in clothing. Throw a bunch of crazy colors together with coordinating extras. There is a lot you can do to add pizzaz....you just have to use your creative thoughts. Many are too scared or think they can't do it but you can....and when you do you will be really proud of what you came up with. It is your creation.
