Then you only cut at ONE end and you end up with strips two times the length of your cardboard. This way I don't need crazy long strips of cardboard!!
When you cut, you need to make sure your scizzors are in between the layers of cardboard, making it a straight cut!
This is what I do as well. I first did it with the cardboard the actual length of the piece (i.e. 20", 22", etc.) and then I switched to the half length method. Either way works just fine
