General tips for cheer bows:

  • The width of the ribbon can vary from 2½” up to 4″.
  • Overall width of the finished cheer bow should be between 6″ to 8″.
  • Add 2″ of length to the ribbon for each inch of overall finished width. For example, a cheer bow with a finished overall width of 7″ would need a 32″ length of ribbon.
  • If you prefer longer tails on your cheer bow, add the appropriate length to the ribbon.
  • Wired ribbon helps the cheer bow loops maintain their shape without drooping. Unwired ribbons can be starched.Best Cheer Bow Making Tutorials
