Default Re: when you are making a gagillion lined clippies at once how do you...

I'm trying to find pics or a tut but so far nothing is coming up. Seriously being a visual person sucks!
Let's say you have a small spool of ribbon with 4 ft. You would place the tape at the end of the ribbon. Just keep going with the tape on the back of the ribbon through the entire length of the ribbon. So you now have a 4ft piece of ribbon with tape on the back of it. Then you measure out the length of ribbon you use to line your clips (I use 4.25 inches). Heat seal the ends of the ribbon pieces you have. Now have a seat in front of the tv or sports practice, peal tape and line clips.

Some people will take that 4ft piece and start lining clips from that and seal as they go. I like to cut and seal ahead of time so I can take them with me
