Default What length do you make your spikes?

How many inches of ribbon do you cut for your spikes?

Thanks

Default Re: What length do you make your spikes?

Usually, whatever size center bow I make, I add two inches to the spikes. For example, if I'm making a stacked boutique style bow, and my center bow is 3 inches, my spikes will be 5 inches. Two inches sounds like a lot, but I also have two surrounding loops on these bows and this length allows for the spikes to be seen under the loops.

I do the same method. If my bow is 3", I make the spikes 5".

LOL I do the opposite way. If I want my stacked bow a 5" stacked bow I'll cut the spikes about 5 3/4" so after stacking and trimming it'll be 5". I make the top and bottom bow a bit smaller so the spikes will show. In my opinion the spikes decide the size of the stacked bow, not the bows themself. For example if you make 5" bows then you stack them together with the surrounding loops and spikes in the middle and of course you want those layer to show, you'll end up with 6" stacked bow.
