Hi! Well what I usually do is I don't cut the ribbon until I'm happy with the results. Usually when you find instruction in this forum you find the length of the ribbon. Its about 15 inches it mostly depends how long you want the tails.

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
