Default Re: when lining with tape

Is it a stress release for anyone else or am I just crazy?
I like to line clips too but I guess I was making it more work than it should be. I was cutting and sealing a bunch of ribbon in 4.5" pieces then adding my tape. Then when I was watching TV or when I had some time or whatever I would just grab my ribbon and my clips and start linning them. I found a couple times when my ribbon was a little longer than I wanted it and I had to trim it and reseal it that it kind of melted the tape and didn't look quite as nice as when I sealed the ribbon before adding the tape. Any tips to sealing once the tape is added?
