okay, that's what i had asked in another post, and they said to use it to cut with too. anyway, i fiddled around with it more after i posted this and found that if i do it sans ruler, it works a ton better. i just have to pull it taught between my index finger and thumb, flat on the cutting board [make sense?]. i started really liking it. but this was 3/8 ribbon, not sure how it'll work for bigger ribbon. it was pretty quick since i had my glass surface ontop of my quilting measuring square thing.
anyway, thanks you guys for your input!
