Default Surrounding Loops Question

All of the tuts that I have read about surrounding loops all call for 3/8 ribbon. My question is, has any one ever used 5/8 ribbon & if so how did it turn out?

Sure, you can use 5/8 ribbon! I'd cut them slightly longer to accommodate for the size, but I've seen it done that way, and it can look pretty.

I use 5/8 a lot for some of my surrounds and then layer it with a 3/8' on top.
