What is the length that you cut your ribbon when you do this?

It depends on how big you want to make them. You can start at 30" and go on up from there. It is best to just get your ribbon and feel your bow size out by hand. Once you have it where you like then cut the excess off and then jot down your measurement for next time.

I looked EVERYWHERE today! Nothing that I have bought or have bookmarked has instrustions for 2 1/4 inch ribbon.

I have one set of instructions that says to multiply the size of your bow times 6 inches to determine the length of your ribbon

Another set says (Bow Width)x(#Loops+2.5)(extra 2.5 is for allowances) As in: 4in four-looped bow, formula is: 4 x (4 + 2.5) = 26 inches ribbon

* I personally wouldn't use less than 30 inches... but with 2 1/4 inch ribbon, I'm sure you'd want at least a 5 inch bow.
I hth a little.... good luck and pls share if you find anything more!

I have a template that says to use 38 inches for 2.25 ribbon which makes a 5 inch bow. HTH

AWESOME!! TY TY SO MUCH!! I will try that and also the other suggestion of 30 in. I tried the 25.5 inch and I felt it wasn't enough ribbon and the bow looked flat. So I will give the others a try.

I just made one and took it apart to measure....
I used 47 inches of 2.25 ribbon for mine. They come out to about 6 inches wide.
I've attached a pic(not the best, but the only one on this computer)

(Edited to add that I made my own template from cardboard that is approx 9.25 inches wide)
