That is perfect! And exactly what I start with However when I attach it to the bow it get's distorted and tightens up more, no matter how loose I leave it. Also my bow loses the nice "roundness" it has before I attach the knot, and becomes a little more oblong if that makes sense. I'll try tomorrow to post pics of what I am talking about.

I stick a little hot glue in the pyramid! Works like a charm!

I stick a straight pin through the pyramid, then poke it through the middle of the bow. It holds it in place while I wrap it around & there is no chance of visible glue
