Default Ribbon Lengths ???



Is there a rule of thumb for us newbies that tells us what length to cut a piece of ribbon to make bows, (e.g.)

2" Bow - what length when using

1-1/2" wide ribbon
7/8" wide ribbon
5/8" wide ribbon
3/8" wide ribbon

3" Bow - ditto
4" Bow - ditto
5" Bow - ditto

What about how long to cut the ribbon for spikes?

2" Bow - what length when using
1-1/2" wide ribbon
7/8" wide ribbon
5/8" wide ribbon
3/8" wide ribbon

3" Bow - ditto
4" Bow - ditto
5" Bow - ditto

What about loops?

2" Bow - what length when using
1-1/2" wide ribbon
7/8" wide ribbon
5/8" wide ribbon
3/8" wide ribbon

3" Bow - ditto
4" Bow - ditto
5" Bow - ditto

This is my frustration every time. Not knowing how long to cut the ribbon

I've wasted more ribbon (well not actually wasted - I save everything that I don't use - within reason of course).

I did to a search, but didn't find much info, there was a mention about a Ribbon Recipe forum, but can't find that either.

I appreciate any help
