So you cut one at a time then? I just don't see how this would work with a stack of ribbon- wouldn't they fuse together?

I love those puffs, bought the tut and made one and said "dang this is time intensive.. they are cute but not that cute.. I may have to give it another try with this method.

One length of ribbon at a time.
I have my mat marked the long way... I lay it down, then the spool of ribbon on the left, trail of ribbon sticking out across the board, all the way to the other side. I have my markings for sizes all the way across the board. Like, I have a line that is my length for clippie lining, another with the length I need for ribbon flowers, etc. Each line has 3 or 4 or whatever lengths will fit on the board.
Then swipe/swipe/swipe/swipe - I just cut and heat-sealed 4 ribbons for clip lining. Then I pull some more ribbon out and put it just below what is already cut and use the already cut ones to measure and cut another length of the cutting board.
It is seriously fast.

I do this too! I am actually using a casserole dish with the sized underneath so I don't have to worry about staying away from the ruler when cutting. Goes much faster. I don't have a cutting mat though... are they glass or metal? Can you use a wood burner on them... hmmm may be on my Christmas list to me

I have a small glass top table (I think is supposed to be a wine rack on bottom) and taped a tape measure to the underside and do this also.

I got the table at CVS last year after Christmas for 90% off. I think it cost about $2.50.

Like some ladies mentioned, I use a picture frame or should I say the glass from a picture frame. I printed out a graph sheet from girlythingbows (I believe thats correct) and place it under the glass before cutting with my woodburner.

You can get a frame from the dollar store, super cheap and gets the job done. You can find the metal rulers on ebay for cheap as well.

I believe that Michaels has a 50% off coupon this week and Hobby Lobby has a 40% one. Never pay full price if you don't have to!

I use a glass cutting mat and a wood burning tool cutting the pieces one at a time. It is faster than using a lighter.
