I bought some tiles to make coasters with, and used one of those. Works great.

I use a piece of glass from an old picture frame that I taped the edges on. If I'm actually measuring ribbon (as opposed to making V-cuts or using the fine tip) then I have my metal yard stick always laying right on top of the glass and I cute the ribbon right on the ruler.

I use a picture frame I got at the dollar store. I put a 1/2 inch grid paper in the frame so I can measure.

You guys are awesome!! Love the picture frame idea and I have several of those in the closet!!

Found out the hard way to be careful w/ not touching the other ribbons.

I use a picture frame that I've inserted a grid pattern into so I already have my measurements marked.

I use a glass cutting board marked for cutting my ribbon for lining clippies. I store my hot burner in a frying pan or a coffee mug so it won't slide off my table. I also keep a damp sponge near by to clean off the gunk!

i will for sure have to get an old picture frame & use it over my cutting mat! i have been using a piece of fiberboard or some sort of wood my hubby cut for me & use a metal ruler to measure. i love the glass picture frame idea much better.

I took an old picture frame and put a piece of paper in it with meaurements on it, I also use a tile that the corner broke on so wasn't good for anything.
