I also think its too much glue. I take a lined clip, put a bit of glue on it for the ribbon that will be the middle of the bow, let it dry, then put some glue on the top of the lined clip and place the bow on there, then secure it with the ribbon and glue the ribbon on the bottom.
I also keep that middle ribbon attached to the spool or in a long piece. When I don't have to hold my hands and all the things really closely I make better bows. So I can set the bow on the lined clip make sure its where i want it, then wrap the middle ribbon. I can adjust how tight the ribbon holds the bow on before adding glue and let the glue dry before clipping the edge of the ribbon.
