Default Ribbon size for bow holder

A friend/customer is having me make a bow holder..it will be my first one. What size ribbon(s) do you prefer to use when making bow holders? I'm a 3/8" girl, so rarely do I have larger ribbon. I ordered some 7/8", but am now thinking I should have done 1".

Any other helpful hints welcomed as well! Thank you girls!!

I like 1 1/2 for mine. I think 7/8 would be okay too though!

I use 1-1/2" most the time, but I like to use 7/8" for the ballerina dress hair bow holders.

I think you will be fine with the 7/8" especially if you are it will be holding mostly bows made of 3/8".

I use 2 1/4 for mine, but mine are made to hold cheer bows, so all the ribbon is big.

7/8 should work for normal bows though.

Thanks!! Most of her stuff is the smaller goodies, so I feel a bit better now that I ordered 7/8". I could have kicked myself for not ordering at least a few preppy stripes in the larger size...lol!!
