Default Re: Share a tip! (a feel good thread!) :)

You have no idea how much I love you right now. This is fabulous. I absolutely cannot cut a round circle to save my life. Going to make some templates tonight. The milk should be empty by then . Thanks!!

the above is from this website - they have tons of stuff to do w/ribbon . . . this month they're featuring drr . . .

one more tip . . . i've been ironing a lot of wrinkled ribbon lately . . . and have always used a plastic iron cover for years & years - i lay my iron (on hi temp & have never melted/scorched any fabric) on the ironing board and pull the ribbon thru . . . no burns, no rusty water spots or other crap that seems to come out of the iron . . . it's a must have! i know i didn't pay $19.99 for mine . . . but this is what it looks like.
