Default Cut ribbon for puffs and other things 100 times faster!!!

Im not gonna lie, this was my dh's idea. He took my glass cutting board and put a strip of masking tape across. He then marked out the needed measurments. Then I just clip the end of the ribbon(using a double prong alligator clip) to the cutting board and cut it at the marks with my wood burner. I cut enough ribbon for 40 puffs in a little over an hour!!!

Ok wait so I am not quite understanding it. Do you wrap the ribbon around the board or?

I used a sharpie on the back of mine to mark my normal measurements. My poor kitchen will never again have a glass cutting board. I think they'll all end up at my work desk.

If you use the woodburner and swipe the ribbon, it cuts and heat seals it in one movement. No need for a lighter. Like, you lay the ribbon across the board. Then use the hot woodburner against the glass above the ribbon. Then swipe down to cut/seal. Works like a charm!
