Default Does anyone measure and mark ribbon?

tott instructions has this, but for a regular bow. I want to make pinwheel bows, but I like to measure out loops so they are even. I also want them to all be the same size. If I eyeball it, my bows are not the same size,

Hoping someone else might measure out loops for this bow or even have a clue what I am talking about.

I don't mark with a pen, but I fold creases so that I can get even loops. So folding in half makes the center point and then again to get quarters. Sometimes I will pinch with an alligator clip for a few minutes to get a nice crease that is easily visible.

Mommylaur, thank you so much! I mark ribbon like Lorraine does. Hopefully I can figure out what my markings should be for the pinwheel.
