Default Layering ribbon

When you layer two pieces of ribbon together to make a bow, do you tack them together somehow or just hold them together while folding the bow? I tried it just holding the two pieces together and by the time I was done the top ribbon wasn't centered anymore. Do I just need to practice or is there some way to hold them together?

Fabri tac the top one down but make the bow before it dries so that it is easier. That is what someone else told me.

I just add a little glue to the edges and then make the bow. I made a bow adding the fabric-tac to the whole length and it made the ribbon very stiff and heavy after it dried. I did make the bow before it dried, just not the end result that i wanted. HTH!

I just hold them together, just practice holding the two pieces where you want them.

I use a small dab of fabri tac to hold it gether. Just a dab here and there. Too much makes it too stiff to handle.

It depends on how you want your finished bow look like. Securing them with fabric tac is a way, but sometimes you may want the loops to look just as they have something wrapped around, then you just need to hold them together. If it's difficult, you may want to use needle and thread and sew them together with fairly big stitches, and remove the thread once the bow is done.
Not sure if this helps but it's what I do

Yes to what Lynn said! When I mean edges I do just the end. Then when I make the V cut it'll cut off the edge that I glued so it isn't adhered to the bottom layer - like this bow

Thanks for all the suggestions. I'll practice a little more and if I still can't get it straight, I'll use a tiny bit of fabri tac or stitch it like Lynn suggested. Thanks again. You ladies are the best.
