1 - Mark ribbon. I did this one every 5 1/2 inches with 3 inch tails, so the total length was 28 inches of ribbon. 1 1/2" wide ribbon.

2 - This shows how the ribbon will need to be laid out when you start folding it together. Sorry, I was doing this myself with one hand on the ribbon and one holding the camera!
Thanks for the tutorial! I've attached a pic of one I made using the picture you posted on the other thread. I had a hard time figuring out the lengths and getting the loops close to being even, now that you've posted such a detailed tut I can't wait to try it again.

And does it make a difference if you are using printed ribbon?

Here's an example of what printed ribbon would look like, if you put the print on the inside.
