Default Tail Length Help?

I follow NBNG's cheer bow instructions, and no matter what I do, the tails are different lengths.
Not by like a couple millimeters, but like half an inch.
Why does it do this even though im putting a pin through the two dots?

Thats why I dont cut my ribbons until the bow is made, if you are doing the iron on thing, just cut it a little longer so you have a bit of room and cut it in the v or slant when you are all done

Then just leave it a bit longer and cut it however you cut it....just give yourself a couple extra inches and you should have plenty of room to make them even up

How would I leave extra room if theres a certain spot that I put the dots and everything?

Just cut it a bit longer and start from say an inch in when you measure rather than from the end......

Sometimes when I make the bows, my tails are maybe a half an inch off on either side as well. Sometimes it is because I cut the ribbon a little too long.

At times, it is because I have put the pin up through the dots that I have made, but when pulling the thread up through and then feeding the needle in and out maybe the dots weren't matching when I made the folds. Some say it could happen because I am pulling the folds too tight.

In any event, as long as you are able to match the tails up at the end before making the V-notch, I would not worry about it too much.
