Default 6 or 7 inch bows

I was wanting to make some BIG twisted boutique bows (6 or 7 inch) using the 2.25 inch ribbon I've purchased. I was wondering if ya'll could help me with measurements. (i.e. for my 4 inch bows I cut a 30 inch piece of ribbon and mark it at 3 in.,6 in.,6 in.,6 in.,6 in.) How big of a piece would you cut and at what measurements would you mark the ribbon? TIA!!

I actually don't mark the ribbon at all. But for 2 1/4" I use about 34 inches of ribbon and for the 3" grosgrain I need about a yard.
