I'm just trying to create a 3b ribbon effect by drawing a curved line with the pencil tool, then going to extrude and bevel.  What the heck are those gray shapes in the ribbon???Screen Shot 2022-12-09 at 1.01.15 PM.png

Is it a single path with no fill and only a stroke?

Expand the stroke (Object > Path > Outline Stroke), tehn apply the 3D effect.

I don't think you need to expand, just a single extruded stroke will do.
