I think the gaps depend on the size of the headband you are using. If I do 1 in headbands, I will put a dab of hot glue every few weaves to hold the ribbon in place as I go. If I use the 1/2 in headbands I do not have many problems at all. I have used just about all brands of ribbon on them too.

I just made one and had a heck of a time. It took me hours bc it kept getting gaps so I would have to unwrap and redo over and over-argh! My first one seemed way easier and it was a diff. brand of ribbon. Or was it just beginners luck???
