Default I'm loosing it...

Using my new Rib-N-Raps template I can make a perfect, perky boutique bow, finallyl! My problem is when I go to put the center knot thing on I loose the perkyness. Something about wrapping the ribbon around the back totally messes up how the loops stand up. Doesn't seem to matter if I use thin or thick ribbon for that it still just does something to the perkyness. After the center is all attached I just cannot get it to look as good as it did when I first tied it.
Any tricks to doing the centers so I don't loose my otherwise perky bow??

I just took a picture of the two bows so you can see what I mean.

What size ribbon are you using for your center? It looks thick...that will change the outcome of your finished bow

Try using a smaller ribbon for your center knot.
