Default help needed -- creasing !

hey guys. i'm new to the site & new to making hair bows =). i have a few questions !

i love the look of the big boutique bows, but i cannot figure out how to crease the centers ! my bows always ended up squishing together & just looking horrible. i try to pinch & fold the center but my fingers always get mixed up & i end up losing it.

& this is hard to explain -- but the way the bow curves, around the center, i can't get mine to fold like that! the zebra print bow on top in the picture.
i googled an example:

any suggestions or tips ? thanks =).

Have you seen Michelle's instructions on creasing? They are really good! Here they are:

And make sure to use the alligator clips like she shows to hold everything in place--they help a lot!
