Question Can someone help me please?

How do you know exactely how much ribbon you need for each different size bow? I always end up having to cut off quite a bit and wasting it.

Sorry I am no help, even with my NBNG templates, I STILL end up with extra LOL! Just wanted to let you know you are not alone!!

I guess you could make one, then rip it apart to see the exact amount of ribbon you need?

Haha, I have thought about doing that but can't bring myself to tear one apart! lol

Anybody else?
My small bow is 2-2 1/2"
medium 3-3 1/2"
Large 4-4 1/2"
Now I just have to figure out how much ribbon for each. Help! Thanks!!

I'm no help with lengths, but I never waste ribbon because I don't cut it off the roll until after the bow is tied off. Might be a bit more hassle to some, but I'm used to it and I usually only have odd pieces from when I get to the end of the roll. Those odd pieces I save for ribbon sculptures and things.
