Default Boutique Bow - ribbon lenght req'd???

Hi y'all,

Oh please help a frustrated newbie.

When making boutique bows, how do you know what length to cut the ribbon to make the different size bows iusing the different ribbon widths?

(e.g.) 2" bow using 3/8, 1/2", 5/8, 1-1/2" width ribbon
3" bow ditto
4" bow ditto
etc, etc

The ones like these:

How To Make Boutique Hair Bow--1--Making 4 Loops Even. : Hip Girl Boutique!, Hair Bows, Baby Hair Clips, Rockabilly Hair Accessories and more.

I think I've seen this info somewhere before and I've been looking thru ALL the info you wonderful ladies have posted that I have saved, but I can't find it for the life of me.

I did FINALLY make the 2" boutique bow using the 7/8" ribbon. I didn't think I'd ever get it. Yeh, finally some bows finished!!!!

Thanks for your help
