Is that what you mean? This is so confusing. I always wrap around the whole middle/crease 2 times. That might be what I am doing wrong?
Well, I don't have her instructions so I was going by my own experience and I use a GatorBite and floss. I don't use needle and thread to tie off. I just wrap floss around the bow with the GB and then tie off. I used to wrap the floss and pull it up the front and tie towards the front. That's where I was having problems with it flopping up, curling upwards. Now I pull the floss towards the back and tie it off in the back. Hope that makes it a little clearer. I have tried needle and thread and never liked it. Just my personal style.

Also, I really love my Gator Bite. It has teeth and it really helps to grip the ribbon to help with the crease. I promise I don't work for them. I think it might make a difference too. I have never used anything else like the Sally's clip.
