How are you putting your layers together? Sewing instead of glueing reduces the bulk. I don't have any other suggestions.

i was going to suggest sewing instead of gluing also. If you use a really good thick thread it shouldn't break. When im finishing i usually wrap my pliers around the tread a couple of times to make it as tight as possible and then i pull with all my might. I can get them pretty tight.

I sew everything now. I didn't used to until I started sewing my korkers and realized the much better quality I was getting. I use a super thick thread and double it to make it really strong so I can tighten as much as possible. I try not to glue anything except the final knot.
Hrm...I dunno. It only happens when I make the large bows with 1.5". Everything else always turns out perfect.

Thanks for all your suggestions ladies, I guess I'll just have to do some more trial and error with some scrap ribbon.
