Okay so cut 47" of ribbon
Line the ribbon with the tape, press it down good...
Now, flip it over, ribbon side up...
Okay on my glass cutting board I have 4.5" measured and marked so this part is easier.
Now just make cuts at 4.5" along your ribbon WITH YOUR WOODBURNER!
It shouldn't cut through the backing, just the ribbon...
Now peel your ribbon off the tape backing like a sticker, line your clips and tada!
Works great...I then clip my clippies onto either a meter stick or large popsicle sticks to help hold while the tape sets up
I LOVE this way its super fast!

No - I can feel the difference between a heat sealed edge and one that isnt because its like a little ridge - but it doesnt look burnt. I have never heat sealed any other way though, so I dont know how it compares to other methods.

I cut all my strips to 4.5 inches with a woodburner as well. Then I just take my tape and stick it to ALL my strips at one time. I then have a continuous roll of the strips on the tape and go with a pair of scissors and cut them apart. I leave the tiniest place to cut on just the tape between each ribbon segment..not the ribbon.

This has been the easiest way for me, as I find that I can get the tape on the straightest on the smaller 4.5" strips as opposed to the longer segments.

Did that make any sense to anybody??

It does - but I worry about my cuts not being perfectly straight and tape sticking out from under the ribbon.
