The more open you are holding the V, the harder it will be to get the barrel against the cut edge. Release as soon as possible or the very center of the V will want to remain folded/creased.

ETA: you could also use a lighter in the same way, but you would aim it at both sides at once with the ribbon almost folded in half.
That's exactly how I do mine, but with the lighter. Took me a lot of trial and error to figure it out too!
