Using the Mini Bowdabra hair bow tool and ruler, measure the korker ribbon at the 2 inch marks at both sides and cut off for a four inch korker ribbon. Repeat cutting for all the korker ribbon into four inch lengths, leaving one korker ribbon intact for bow tying.  Seal the ends with heat from a flame or nail polish.
