    I have some tutorials in my blog thriftyideastoday.com for strip quilts or table runners - example the 9 patch or 12 patch - this is such a great idea using the small scraps on the old register paper.

    I found 2- 3" rolls in a bag for $1.00 at Goodwill on Friday, then had to stop at Gordon Food Service, and found a box of 12 marked down for $4.90! I am stocked up & ready to go! Thank you Sue!

    I finally tracked down some 3in rolls over here. I could only persuade the shop to sell me two - otherwise they wanted me to buy a whole box (I might go back for them later). Anyway, here is my effort so far.

    I addapted a box that originally held a block of note paper to hold my roll. Two holes drilled in it, and an old plastic knitting needle did the trick (I cut it to length).

    A couple of large hair grips are keeping things under control at the other trimmed end.

    I think you could drill a plastic holder too if you had the right drill bit

    I love it. Now I am going to have to go back to thrift store to find one of those boxes.
    Thanks.

    Sue had a nice holder for her roll, and I had a small cardboard box I could have used, but I like this better as there wasn't anyway I was going to be able to find one like hers.

    I also found it easier to cut up scraps in front of the TV so that I had a good box of them to choose from, rather than doing it in front of the machine, which seems to hold up production. I think I could get addicted to these strips.

    Very creative, don't think I would have thought of that. I don't watch much TV, I spend most evenings on this quilt board. Looks like a great way to use up small bits.
