I gang them and run them through the planer. Just make a pair of square guides, thinner than the height of your strips and long enough to support those strips through the planer. Clamp the guides to the in feed and out feed at each end.
I’ve done 1/8” up through 5/8” successfully. 1/4” thick strips and, thicker, don’t require the support all the way through.
For the 1/8th stuff, I’d suggest a gang of 4 at the minimum.
