Default How do you cut 4.5" ribbon for clip lining?

Does anyone have a good and quick method for cutting 4.5" stips of 3/8 for lining alligator clips? I just cut one piece and hold it on top of my ribbon over and over clipping one at a time. There has got to be a better way. ANYONE???

I made several 4.5" marks on the back of an old cookie sheet and I use my woodburner to cut them. That's the quickest way I've found.

I just cut a template out that measures 2.25 and wrap it around and cut on one end. This way I can cut several at once. Then I just quickly swipe them over my woodburner.....HTH

I pre-line mine with tape then use my woodburner to cut them on a piece of glass with a ruler underneath. Love mabear's idea!

I use my rotary cutter and mat. I have it marked on my mat (4.5 then another mark at 9 and so on) so that I can cut several then move them out of the way and go on to the next. Works well for me. Then I ususally have my hubby heat seal the ends for me while I'm cutting lol

I got a scrap piece of Granite and painted the marks on it of the measurements i use the most then use that to measure out and cut the ribbon with the wood burner so it seals it all in one swipe..

This sounds dang handy. I have granite countertops and it rocks crafting on it! In fact, when I make rolled roses, I actually glue the bast to my granite and go from there. It holds it really still, then I can just peel it off. Also, it is great because I don't' have to worry about where I am sitting my glue gun. Just one question though...isn't is so heavy?
