I sew everything now. I didn't used to until I started sewing my korkers and realized the much better quality I was getting. I use a super thick thread and double it to make it really strong so I can tighten as much as possible. I try not to glue anything except the final knot.
Hrm...I dunno. It only happens when I make the large bows with 1.5". Everything else always turns out perfect.

Thanks for all your suggestions ladies, I guess I'll just have to do some more trial and error with some scrap ribbon.
