the only ones I cut ahead of time are the twisteds and generally for those I use about 3 inches of ribbon for each inch I want the bow to be, so if I want a 3 inch bow (which is 3 inches times tow as there are two sides to the bow) so I use about (3x3)2 or about 18 inches and that makes me a 2.5-3" bow
so if I want a 5 inch bow (5 inches on both sides so 10) then I would use about 30 inches of ribbon.......not an EXACT science but usually pretty close (sometimes I just do 2-2.5 inches per inch of bow)
the rest, I dont cut until I am dont making the bow so none is wasted
