search for the tread "cheater method" and see if you can find that thread. It's been a great help to me.

In essence, your angles for folding your ribbon aren't sharp enough. Your ribbons should cross at a 90 degree angle. a smaller angle will make a flatter bow.

I agree with bows and bags, but your surrounds look really good.

I've been doing a bow on the bottom, then spikes, add surrounds then final bow. HTH!! I would suggest adding some black to your spikes too.
