I've created an outline ribbon. I'd like to place another image inside the ribbon and give it the warping blend tool.

The operation cannot be complete because of an unknown error. 
I had 8 images that I unlinked and embedded in illustrator so that I could create a symbol with it.

Here is a pic of the symbol I am trying to put into the ribbon outline:
Here is the finished result I am trying to achieve:
