it would also help if the one ribbon on the bottom left--the one that goes inside the loop of the bows is trimmed down so that it does that. It will allow you to open up the "x" more.

I am no expert, but I find the cheaper ribbon is harder to do too! They never turn out right!

It looks like the crease may be the issue, not sure if you sew or tie off but it looks like it needs to be tighter and that would help.Then shape it and you should be good to go!

In the first pictures - really the biggest issue is you need to "fluff" the bow. I agree that you need a tighter crease too. I find that pulling the thread really tight and having a tight center makes the bow shape up better.
I usually grab the bow by the edges near the center knot and kind of push them down and curve them inwards at the same time. I dont' know if that makes sense or not! LOL You want your four inner sections to resemble a "C" shape.
Then I will take my fingers and flatten out the center "ruffles" that are created by the creases.
In the second pictures it looks like that is the back of the bow??
Here's pic of my tbb - it really just takes practice, and some starch!! LOL
ETA: I use the figure 8 method as well. Thats what works for me!

I do mine the same way as you.Before I tie my bow off, it seems to help me to somewhat shape it to make shaping it correctly easier,I have tried many different methods, and that was the easiest for me!
