Default Wrapped Headbands

Okay ladies apparently I am a moron. I can not get my headbands to look right. Every time I wrap them I get a perfect look on one side and a bubbled up, goofy looking other side. I have read a few tuts and they still look crazy.
I have been slightly overlapping the ribbon and glueing a bit on the underneath. Is this wrong?
I have a show in two weeks. I have got to get them down before then.
Until I master them, does anyone have any solid single colored headbands to destash?
TIA

I can make you some headbands if you like.....

I took a while for me to get it down...No morons here!!!! Lets see if I can explain it.
as you wrap, you need to over lap by about half. I do not glue the ribbon, only the two ends. You need to have a firm grip on the ribbon, and jockey the ribbon untilit lays flat. its difficult sometimes because the ribbon does not lay flat( that would be toooo easy) I've done tones of them and I still find myself sometimes having to redo them. It takes patience and practice.

Honestly unless wrapping headbands are the only thing you need to do before your show. I'd wait until after the show to spend time on it.

Hope i helped.....

I wrap headbands all the time and they are one of my favorite things to make. I use 3/8" ribbon and wrap 3/8", 3/4" tapers and 5/8" plastic headbands. The key, I have found, is not to overlap at all. That makes them bunch up on the down side of the headband. I just hold it really tight and make sure the ribbon is lined up and at an angle the whole way around. Oh, I also use double sided tape on the inside to help hold it as I am wrapping. I never have a problem. I posted a mini tutorial on here (just a few pics) of me starting and ending the headbands, but I couldn't find it!! Sorry! Anyhow, I hope what I have said helps. Good luck!

When I first started out making bows and headbands I copied a headband my friend purchased in a boutique. (I later found out it was from bloomingbows.com). It was a 3/8" skinny headband made with 3/8" ribbon and it was not overlapped at all. I had no problem recreating it. When I started in with 7/8" ribbon, I found I had to overlap and it made a horrible mess in the end! So now I just stick to the flat, edge to edge with the 3/8" ribbon and it always comes out perfect. My hands cramp like crazy making them, but they always look professional and neat. lol

I think the key is not overlapping the ribbon at all. That is what causes the bubbles and makes it not smooth.
