I wrap my knot over the clip. I do it for the same reason stability.

I use 3/8 ribbon and I wrap it around the clip so that the bows stay better. I glue the unfinished bow to the clip and then glue the center to the top and then wrap around and glue under the clip. But I do not make layered bows. The biggest I have made is a 4 in boutique with a 1.5 ribbon. So that could be why I have not explored the bigger ribbon for centers

I do the same thing. At first, I only make bows with 1.5" ribbon (from 2.5" wide - 5" wide). Use 1.5" ribbon for bow center so I don't have to stock 7/8" or 3/8" ribbon.

Here are some center knot styles and how to make them.

I do the same as Michelle. Although I have not accomplished using my wood burner.

I use 3/8 and 5/8. They work great for me. I haven't tried any bigger ribbon than that, I think it would be to much if I were to use any bigger.
