Default Re: Cut ribbon for puffs and other things 100 times faster!!!

how do you make sure that your ribbons don't slide around as you cut them???

I use my metal ruler so I get a straight cut then swipe/swipe/swipe. Sixteen ribbons cut (4x4) and I set up my board again and do it all over again & again & again. Works like a charm. Better yet, I have my DIL to do all this while I sew the puff together. I guess that would mean I actually don't do the cutting at all.

I only cut up to 4 across because I seem to do better with that number. If I work with more then 4 it seems the ribbon will slide and that leaves me with uneven sizes for my cut ribbon.
