Default Re: what size of ribbon for stacked bows?

I always use 1.5 as my base bow. Here's my general formula:
  • 1.5" base
  • 1-3 size 1.5" spikes
  • 1-3 size 7/8" and or 5/8" spikes
  • 1.5" or 7/8" topper
IMO, if you aren't making a humongous bow, the 7/8" topper is easier to work with because you can make a cute one that is less bulky.

Hope that helps! Have fun!
