Default Re: any reviews on imaginisce i-magicut? ribbon sealer

thank you for this review, sounds like my normal methods are still going to be easier. I only use Schiff or Offray and was considering using this tool for some layered ribbon and cheer bows, sounds like it wouldn't be the best tool to cut through all those layers.

It does work on satin and sheer ribbon although mine did stick together at the tips and then you have to iron the crease out of the ribbon so I will stick with my old method of cutting V's. It works fine on single layers although I did have to press additional times to get it to cut through polka dots.

For cutting hairclip strips, I would mark an inch from the end of the ribbon and then every 4 1/2 inches so you know where to cut through. (You do need a bit of overhang at the start of the ribbon, hence the extra inch unless you want to just mark every 4 1/2 inches and use a woodburner or lighter on the end of the first piece.)

I have to wonder how long that very thin piece of wire will last!
