I hope you can follow this- I can't explain well. I have a glass cutting board on my craft table. It's one of those that folds in half- so it has a middle line. I measure 2 inches from that middle line (or whatever length I want) and put the glass board 2 inches from the line. Then the korker hangs over- lining up with the line and I can cut under with scissors to get the same cut every time.

Some cut with the wood burner- but I am scared to death of it.

I use a wood burning tool to cut mine. That way you can cut and seal the edges at the same time. It saves me time doing it this way.

Someone on here showed a glass cutting board she had marked off in one inch squares. I copied her ~ just measured and used a permanent marker on the bottom side. So I use that to measure, then cut and seal with the wood burner. It takes a little practice to develop your own method of holding the ribbon while cutting (without burning your fingers) but it gets easier and is so very fast!

thanks for posting that tut....I was using scrap craft wood to cut with my wood burner... I need to go make this with the glass - it will be so much easier.
