Any tips for how to make 2 1/4" wide ribbon hair bows?

It is the same way as you would make your basic or twisted boutique. You are just using a longer amount of ribbon. Work with it free hand to get a general idea of how much ribbon you are wanting to work with.

trial and error is the best way to learn. Try cutting in different lengths and find the right one for you. I like my bows all different lengths...and I found the one I liked best from trying out different lengths.

I haven't used any ribbon over 1.5'' so I'm really of no help with that width

I agree, I make them the same way.
I live in the South and although I don't make them too often, some customers really adore the huge ones!

Oh, and length-wise, I usually use 1 yard to make them.
