Default Wrapping Ribbon Headbands

I'm struggling with simply wrapping a headband in ribbon... When you're wrapping the headband (plastic or metal) do you overlap the ribbon at all as you wrap the headband? I've been overlapping my ribbon slightly, but about half way through the ribbon starts to "bubble" if that makes sense... How do you keep this from happening? Also, for a thin headband (1/8" or 1/4") what size ribbon would you use to wrap it? Thanks for your help

I wrap my 3/4 inch and 1/2 inch headbands with 5/8 inch ribbon and I don't overlap my ribbon. I just line it up. I've lined 1/4 inch headbands with 3/8 inch ribbon, again, no overlapping. I haven't tried wrapping any 1/8 headbands so I'm not sure about that one.

I usually only wrap 1/2" with 3/8" ribbon- no overlapping, just line it up (I use tape on the underside to keep it where it's supposed to be) and then the top can still be used as an interchangeable HB. HTH
