Ok, took a few quick snaps. Hope it's not confusing,,
After the wrapping (above pic), slide in a needle at the center.
What I meant by fanning out (the needle will help keep all the ribbons/loops in place and also helps when you're separating the loops)
~Notice that my other tail-end doesn't show, after finished wrapping all the loops needed, coz it still ends at the bottom.
Same pic as above, different angle.
Same pic as above..closeup..
