Default Itty bitty stacked bows, how much ribbon and sizes?

This is my first post. Just had a girl and want to learn how to make some itty bitty stacked bows. I'll probably buy one of the templates to make it but don't know how much ribbon or the sizes I need to buy to make them. I want to take advantage of the grosgrain sale on TRR.

Thanks in advance.

i would buy the smallest amount you can on TRR and a mix of colors and dots etc

you can use 5/8 or 3/8 for the tiny ones

Thanks for responding. I should have been more specific. How many yards and what sizes is it going to take to make one?

Thank you! That helps a lot! Even though I want one in every color, I don't want to go crazy buying ribbon and then it doesn't work out. Not even sure why I'm trying to make bows, I'm not that talented LOL
