Default Re: What size ribbon do you use for your centers?

I had been using some 5/8 and 7/8 and folded it in half when gluing onto the clip but it makes the clip too bulky and it won't close all the way. Still learning. I'm glad I found this forum!!

I range from 3/8 to 1 1/2 inch depending on what look I'm going for......I like big chunky bows on my daughter so this a.m., I made a bow to go with the outfit she's wearing to church........used 1 1/2 inch for the center on it because it was going on a 3 inch headband so i wanted the chunky look.....If it's a smaller bow, I use 3/8......
