Default Firecracker/pom pom bows help!

I made some new bows last night and I really loved the way they look. However they seem flimsy. I folded ribbon strips long ways and and then into a " v" and threaded through a needle. I stacked all 18 pcs and sewn through twice. Bow is loose and you can see the the stack in center and it almost weighs it down if that makes sense ? her is a link to the instructions I'd appreciate any help.

the ones I make with ribbon, I only use 6 strips about 4 inches long. The ones I make with fabric, I use about 25-30 pieces. Using 18 strips of ribbon may make it heavy, but also, you need to sew through middle several times. I probably sew through more than I need to but I want to be sure it is secure. If you sew through the middle a couple more times, I bet they won't be flimsy anymore?! HTH!!

I agree - fewer strips and more sewing. I haven't tried it exactly this way, but similar. I used 8 pieces at 3" long.

I followed those instructions, the first one (not the fold and V shape) , I use 12 strips (three different colors), and I put an extra one on the top.

This is the result:

I can't see anything wrong with them? I suppose using the different type of ribbon may make it look different but they look fine to me.
