Arrow Help Using 2.25" Ribbon with templates to make HUGE Bows

I have tons of requests for the HUGE boutique bows using the big 2.4" ribbon. I also LOVE the look of them. I have the BBM templates and I love them for all my other bows but as of right now she doesn't have the template to do the wide ribbon. She is supposed to have them available soon and I will get these too but I need something ASAP!

I also have the Rib N Raps templates from LAMB and I am having trouble using the wide ribbon with that one, and when I do get one to wrap right it's not "Big" enough.

I use the GatorBite to crease and tie my bows so I need something that doesn't involve sewing.

Here is a link to a picture of ONE of the styles I'm trying to accomplish

Thanks so much in advance for your help!

ETA: Here is a picture of my daughter wearing one of the HUGE bows that I need to learn:

Default Re: Help Using 2.4" Ribbon with templates

I do mine by hand, what size in inches are you looking to make with the 2.25" ribbon? looks like maybe a 7" bow?

For an 6" Twisted boutique cut ribbon 42 inches long. Make a mark at 3", then make a mark every 9 inches. If you want it bigger increase your marks by .5 or 1" increments. The example picture has a really long tail so you'd probably want a 5" tail for that side.

Here's Michelle's link on folding by hand.

Yes, it's about a 7 inch bow, and I have those instructions that I bought with my Rib N Raps templates. Unfortunately, I am a total spaz when I try to do those. I just need to find or make a template for these. The Rib N Raps would be perfect if they were just a few inches wider. And my BBM templates are great too just not big enough. Thanks so much for your help though, maybe one day I can lose the templates.

I made my own template out of cardboard that is about 9.5-10 inches wide and wrap the ribbon around and do the pin in the middle method. The tbb usually comes out to 6.5-7 inches wide
