She wants the formula for figuring out how much ribbon to use.

Here ya go:

ribbon length = desired width of bow * (number of loops + 2)

So, for a 4'', 4 loop boutique bow it would be:

4*(4+2) = 24'' ribbon

HTH!

The + 2 is for the tails.

It's for tails plus wiggle room - if you get really good at making sure your loops are even and right on center, etc, you could probably take an inch off that to reduce waste.

Okay I thought it was this:

4x(width of the bow+standup_parameter)+2 x tail

standup parameter being anywhere from .25" for flat bows to 2" for fluffy bows
the tail would be 1" for 2"-3" bows and 2" for 4" bows and up.

so if I want to make a fluffy 3 inch bow it would be:

4 x (3+2) + (2 x 1)
4 x 5 + 2
22

I got these off of Michelle's instructions, which one is right?
