Default Length of ribbon??

I am trying to make bows like this. They are made with 1.5" ribbon and they are about 4.5" wide. How long should my piece of ribbon be? Thanks!

For a 4" it's 28" and for a 5" it's 32". This is from my BBM. I use these meseaurements and get perfect results everytime. For a 4.5" I'm not sure. Maybe try 30". Go from there? HTH
