Default Please help, my bows look like flowers!

and I guarantee if I was trying to make a flower it would look like a bow!! I am new to bow making and hip girl and need help! I can't get a over the top bow to lay flat! It looks like a flower! When I stack them they get pushed together(the ends come up). I am trying to upload the picture I took.
I like big bows and decided to try it because my basic bows need hidden! I can't do that right either!!!!
Any suggestions?
WHAT AM I DOING WRONG????????

I couldn't get the picture in a post so I made it my profile pic.
Something else to figure out

Mine used to do the same thing, see they kind of collapse in the middle. What helped me was purchasing a tutorial. I used the one at Lil' Hiccups http://lilhiccupsboutique.com/item_1...structions.htm well worth the money imo! second pic is one I made yesterday. You can see the difference!

Forgot, when I upload pics all I have to do is click on the little paperclip icon and it will open a window to browse my files. Hope this helps!

If you could post a picture, it would be easier to help you critique it.

did you try starching your layers? that sometimes helps to keep the right shape. I would have to agree with pp that you should buy a tut. it will make life easier!
