I recommend taking your ribbon, use fabric pens and draw the wave, fold the bow and see if it looks right, if not try again. Once you get the right wave, you'll need to copy it onto your heat and bond, cut, iron fold.

Once you establish the right wave to the right length of ribbon for the specific bow you're making it'll be easier.

Thank you I had not thought of drawing it out on ribbon first, sometimes not sure where my brain is. just like other things just need a second set of eyes to find the problem.
