    It will take 99 sec, because at last when the last strip of 2 foot will remain .. it will take only one second to cut it into two strips of i foot each..

    2 sec. Fold into two feet each in zigzag manner. Cut in middle so you will be left with 2 one feet ribbon and 49 of 2 feet ribbons. Stack 49 of 2 feet ribbons and cut in middle.
