OK, enough talking! Get ready for a quick trip to kitchen tool section of your nearest supermarket, department store or even a dollar store, and then another quick stop at hardware store (like Home Depot or alike), and you are done!
Get a few (minimum 2 to begin with) pizza cutters. Not any pizza cutters, but the ones where the blade is screwed with a nut and bolt type of fixture. Unscrew it and take apart. You are going to need the blades only.
Take them with you to the nearest hardware store and now find a threaded rod (ask for help if you are not sure where to look for that). They are usually long so you can make a few different length ribbon cutters for yourself, or make a couple extra for a nice gift (just cut them with a hacksaw). They also come in a few different diameters.
Your goal would be to find matching rod diameter for the hole in your pizza blade. They should fit snugly. Once you found the rod, get two metal nuts of the same size for it.
Now we need spacers for our cutter, they will determine the widths of our ribbons and strips. Get the PEX drinking water pipe (it's made of flexible, but sturdy plastic, see image #3). Mine came in a length of a few feet (may be 10), and cost only a couple bucks. It can be easily cut with PVC plastic pipe cutters.
Cuts like butter! You can measure it with a ruler, make marks, and cut as thin or as thick as you like, and because you have a lot of it, you will be able to make a huge selection of whatever width spacers you might need, and continue making them whenever you need a new, different size spacer.
And if you slide two pieces of pipe on the sides of the rod to rest your fingers at while cutting, you'll get a very smooth consistent roll!
Put a few blades on it to make many ribbons at once, or just two to make one ribbon.
Make one with fluted blades if you are lucky to find that kind of pastry cutters.
