“How many yards of ribbon do I need to purchase to make 10 bows?”
That is a question I have heard a multitude of times in the warehouse. There really is not a good objective answer for it since it will involve the number of bow loops involved, the length you will make each loop, the number of tails you will be running off the bow, and the length of those tails. I can give you a general guideline with a bow built with our description.
|Ribbon Size||1 1/2″ wide||2 1/2″ wide|
|Yardage||6 yards||6 yards|
|Diameter of Bow||12″ with 8 loops||12″ with 14 loops|
|Extra Set of Tails||2 yards for every set||2 yards for every set|
