Default Need help making extra large bows!

I have been making bows with the 1.5" ribbon for a while now with no problems. I want to start making the extra large boutique bows using the 2.25" ribbon but I cannot figure out how to do it! I use the figure 8 method for my other bows but for some reason when I try it with the larger ribbon it doesn't look right. Does anybody have any suggestions or instructions for making the larger bows?
Thank you! Julie

I've tried using 36" but the loops just don't turn out like the ones I've seen. I use 32" for my 1 1/2" wide ribbon.

Try this video. She is using 1.5" in the video but I have used the technique in order to achieve a good bow using the larger ribbons.

I make alot of bows with 2.25" ribbon and I use the same method as in the video posted. Depending on the size my customer wants I use either a 8" template which is 40"'of ribbon or a 9" template which is 45" of ribbon. The big bows like this look really good if you can hand fold them, which I have no luck doing!
