AI always seem to have a problem with the ribbon not laying up against the sides flat around the corners. I try to tighten the ribbon and then it digs into the corners...How do I fix this? I have a square this weekend and it has a silver rhinestone ribbon and not sure how I can get it to look perfect.

Try brushing on RI OR water thinly on the back of the ribbon. If the ribbon is a bit heavy, I would try the RI.  I have never have one to fall off yet using the RI!! hth

Will the RI not pull the buttercream off?

This is just ribbon from the store and not fondant ribbon...
