I use 2.5 inch, thats just what I had available and they seem to work good. I can fit a LOT of tulle on it (and the perk is because you can see how many holes you have - you know how many strips you need. I usually do 2 per knot.)

For the newborn ones Ive done - I did them about 6-7'' long, so I cut my strips double that length.


Heres some of mine on the headbands
They turned out great ~ very pretty!

Mr.Monkey is my newborn substitute lol...
Love it! You did a great job!
