Cut the additional yellow and pink strips in 4 1/2 inch strips. 
When assembling the blocks, make sure you line them up well as indicated with the black arrow in the picture above. Make 16 "yellow strip" blocks and 16 "pink strip" blocks.
Use the Skinny X (dotted lines) to place the ruler.
Cut all the "yellow strip" blocks with the ruler RIGHT SIDE UP.
