Go through both layers and knot, and repeat once more. Flatten out, put a dab of glue to join the edges together, attach to a dlip, add center (that's waht really flattens it out) TaDa
Yes!! I think sliding the needle through the beginning end of the ribbon and back again before knotting the thread is the Missing Link I needed! Will report back tomorrow! Thanks!
