She is exactly right! Each successive layer should be placed farther away from the center. Look underneath and place the loose edge of ribbon about halfway on the previous layer. Then, cover the whole thing with a wide circle of felt when you"re done.

Mine started out looking stacked early on; Now, some of mine are flat as a pancake.
