I put a straight pin in it and then i get all of my other spikes and i do the same. i put a piece of eraser on the back of the straight pin to hold it all together. i fan out my spikes . And i run my needle down the middle. I then remove my straight pin. I squish the ribbons onto the needle and i pull my needle through i wrap my thread around 2 or 3 times and im done. I can post some pics if you want of how i do mine.
This is exacty how I do mine
It's similar to the way in Lynn's spike tutorial on her blog, except I use the straight pin like you described above. And I also sew through and then wrap around
