Default Felt Bow holder tops

I have purchased a bunch of bow holder tops but had a few questions to make sure I do this correctly...

What is the best way to attach the ribbon?

What size ribbon would you use?


Thanks!!

My guess would be to sew it on.

When I make them I stitch the ribbon in between the layers of felt but I make them myself. I know a lot of my customers glue the ribbon onto the back with a felt sandwich. Back of felt, Ribbon, and then a small square of felt over the top of the ribbon if that makes sense or they just hand stitch the ribbon onto the back of it. I attached a photo of one I did with I believe 1 inch ribbon, I probably would of done 7/8 if I had any that I thought looked good, I am not a bow maker so my ribbon is limited!

I stitch the ribbon between the layers of felt and I use the 7/8 ribbon as the other is too wide as the little one I put on the bottom doesn't fit well or I just do a bow at the bottom.

Thanks ladies!! Where I have purchased these from someone else I can not stitch them in between the felt so I guess I will hot glue it! Thanks so much for your suggestions!!!

One more question.....How long do you make the ribbon?? I have heard 26" and 36"! LOL Big difference....just seeing what the norm is!
