2" does not give you a lot of room to play with if you don't want the edges to show.
If she wants a true bow and not a flower, I think I would sew it into a tube first and then use that as "ribbon." A tuxedo bow would be cute and simple. Or you can make several tuxedo bows of different widths and then cinch them together in the middle. Depending on the material, you might be able to find a coordinating color and use that as the middle. There are free tutes for tuxedo bows.
Let us know what worked out!
