I love the look of cutting cardstock strips into ribbon edges. I just use scissors and cut triangles. I was just wondering if there is another way to cut them?

Thanks

I cut down the center and then from each corner to the farthest part of that first cut.

If you want a 'v' look on the end, just fold the end of the ribbon in half, and cut at an angle. Makes a fast and perfect cut.

Oooh, you ladies are full of good tips. I usually just eyeball it, but the square punch (yay I'll finally get some use out of it) and folding in half idea are both good ones!
