Default Re: Estimating ribbon length based on final size?

I use 16" of ribbon for my 3" boutique bows when I use the figure 8 method. I use 1/2" on each end of the ribbon to overlap when they meet in the middle. If I use my hand & wrap the ribbon around it (I think this is similar to how others do it with the template), I use roughly 18-19" of ribbon because of the tails.
