Default ? on Homemade bow templates

(I searched the site, but couldnt find answer)
When making my own bow templates, do I label them by the total size of the
template or by the size of the bow loop? Also, while watching this video
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uYm3z6xWY8I, she makes a 3in. bow using 4 1/2in. template. How do I figure out what template to use for the size bow I want???
Hope my questions arent confusing) Thanks Alondra

She shows you exactly how to make the bow in the begening of the vid. and then at the end tells you exactly how to make the templates...in different sizes Hope this helps!

You just have to play around with what works for you. The video the pp posted is my video. I use 4" template for 5/8" ribbon, 4 1/2" template for 7/8" ribbon and a 6" template for 1 1/2" ribbon. And yes, the template is labeled based on the width of the template. hth

You're the lady in the video? Debi? (I think that's her name). If that's you, you're a great teacher

There are 2 videos. One that was posted was Devon from No Bow No Go or something like that. Mine was the 2nd one. My Youtube name is Skylerzmom. They are both made the same except when making mine, I use a double prong clip to hold the back together.
