Default How much ribbon to use?

I want to make a 7x6 cheer bow, but i cant figure out how much ribbon to use.
Would I just multiply 7 by 6?

I was thinking 2.5 or 3, but I cant find any grosgrain ribbon in those widths.
On hand, I think the biggest I have is 2.25, but its really thin.
The next biggest is 1.5.

To do an 8" bow you're not going to be happy with the 1.5, it won't look right. 2.25" is nice, about 34 inches is what I would gauge. 3" would look the best for the big bows, but I don't have any on hand at the moment, my squads don't go for the Texas size bows. HTH

TRR has 3" grosgrain 3" Solid Grosgrain

I am working on some right now for a team using 3" ribbon. The finished bows are about 7-8" wide and I cut the ribbon 32"
