If that makes sense. WHen it is folded it is kinda like two halves layering in the center-- the top half (on the right) and the bottom half (left). And I have to adjust where these meet in the center. I hope that make sense, I don't know how to explain it better. Do I make any sense? Or am I just sounding crazy?

No you sound right. My issue is knowing where "scientifically" or just "precisely"where to line it up in the middle. I fold the ribbon the same way everytime using the same method. But there are times it is right and other times I am off a smidge.
