I’ve used this technique for many years, here is another Demonstrator showing how:
In US terminology, my jig is 1-1/2 inches wide x 3 inches, it takes about 8 inch lengths of ribbon and I do not remove the ribbon from the jig until AFTER the ends are trimmed by the pockets.
I have made jigs of all widths, but this one is my favorite size. It works great with Bakers Twine, as well - triple it in appropriate lengths - 8 inches x3 - then tie a small knot at both ends so you can use as one piece. When you trim the ends you cut off the knots in the Twine.
LOL watch the YT video and see if this makes sense...
Edited to add: I also used my closed-end tweezers to manipulate the ribbon through the knot
