It’s the seams that are sticking up, right?  Why not cover each seam with something like a button or a small, flat bow in the same color?

No experience with it but have you tried double sided tape?

I would maybe try to cut the ribbon so it just lines up, and then cover the place where it meets with a button like loves-a-limey suggests.  Your ribbon colors are great!  I am sure that you can get wonderful bright buttons that you could maybe hot glue over the place where the ribbon meets.

Use an iron. I used an iron for my invites (PITA) but it came out looking great.

you could sew them.  if youfold over the ends, iron them, and then sew a small stitch in them, they should stay.

I think folding the ends back and lining them up so they barely touch would make the seam look very clean and neat even if you can still tell where it is. That way you’re not dealing with any fraying or jagged cutting.

I would glue the ribbon over itself in the back, wait for it to all dry, the slice through both the point where ribbon is overlapping (through both layers) with an exacto knife so you are cutting part of the bottom and top layers off, and you’ll have a perfectly clean edge and everything is stuck to the PVC.
