Question help with ribbon wrapping headbands...

all evening i was trying to wrap some plastic headbands i got with 3/8" ribbon to match some pretty bows i made and i just cant get the ribbon to lay nice and flat and even on the headband! anyone have tips or tricks for this?
maybe im using the wrong size ribbon on the wrong size headband?

i want results like this: (not my etsy or photo, just using as example...)

I really struggle with this as well... My headbands turn out so lumpy when I wrap them and I try sooooo hard! I'm going to check out the tut... The headband from etsy is beautiful!
