See, I started out making them like the tut but now I have my own method. I put a needle through cardboard and then, using it as a center point, drop each korker ribbon down on it and fan it out. I then pin each end of the ribbon to the cardboard. After I'm satisfied with how they look, I slip my fingers under the ribbon and grab it tight in the center. Then I remove the pins and bring the needle up through and sew it a few times. It is HARD to do through so many layers, but the ribbons stay put.
