Then cut the surround ribbon in half, fold in half and crease in the center of each piece, then take the end of the ribbon, glue it 1/4 inch away from the center crease. Do this twice for each surround. Then glue those two together and there you have it. I can try to post pictures later if need be.
This is how I do mine and they seem to turn out much better this way! Very simple! You can also add a few stitches if you're not comfy with just glueing.
