Need help with how much ribbon to order.

I am going to need 1/4" ribbon to tie around 2x2x2 favor boxes (approx 145). The site I found the ribbon on, sells it 100 yards per spool.  I am a total moron when it comes to this stuff....any idea how many spools I will need to order?


TIA

How many inches are in 100 yards???  Yikes ( I can see the look of disappointment from my elementary school math teacher ) I am going to have it tied so it goes around all sides and it's going to have a small charm where the bow meets.

Well she never really asked us for help all that much after that.  I'd offer to help and she'd run screaming the other way.
