For only 1/8” wood I would soak it in warm water for about 5 minutes, clamp a metal strap to the outside face and bend it on my iron for about 10 minutes and call it a day. I also keep a spray bottle of water handy to cool the piece off if it begins to dry out and scorch any.

When properly bent on an iron, clamps and forms are not really needed.
