Default measuring ribbon

Hi ladies! I know I seen it on here before but now I can't seem to find it! Michelle had an "equation" (ha!) set up on how much ribbon to measure out when making the basic/boutique fold had a standup parameter in it. Could someone PLEASE point me in the direction of where this thread is located at? Thanks in advance for your help!

This is my equation:

(width of bow) x (number of loops + 2) = ribbon length to cut

So, if you wanted a 4 inch boutique bow, it would be:

(4 inches) x (4 + 2) = 24 inches

The extra "2" is for the tails, etc.

Here it is:

By the way, the plain bow requires less ribbon (like pinwheel). The standup bows requires longer ribbon.
