Default 3/8 boutique bow......

Can someone please tell me what length to cut the ribbon to make a boutique bow out of 3/8th ribbon??? I have tried a few times, and it just doesn't come out right. I want to make my daughter a couple of the smaller "surround bows" and having some trouble figuring out the best way to do it all using 3/8ths. The spikes are easy of course, but the surrounds, and the top bow just aren't working!! All my measurements are off. Not sure what lengths work best, and how to adjust where to fold. Have wasted enough ribbon, now I need help!!!
PLEASE??!

Hi
For a 5 inch layered/stacked style boutique bow I use 20 inch pieces of 3/8 for the surrounds. HTH.

how wide are you trying to make this bow, 3 inches or smaller? I use 12-15 inches of 3/8 when i want to make a 2-3 inch boutique bow. the surrounds should be at least the length of you top bow. and you can add up to 2 inches, if you like the surrounds longer.

I wanted the bow to be at least 3", wasn't sure if it is entirely 3/8th ribbon if it would look okay to be 4".

Thanks for the input. I will try again during naptime!

So, the bow itself will be made out of 3/8" too? Post a pic when you have it finished... I would love to see how it turns out as I have been wanting to try it. Everytime I make a 3/8" bow it turns out too flat... (well, I have that trouble with all my bows... )
