Wood burners are about $10 in the craft dept. at Wal-Mart and won't leave a slight wet stain on some ribbon like frey check does. They are super easy to use if you get the tip that looks like a pencil tip. Also, invest in a glass cutting mat from the scrapbooking dept at Michael's and a metal ruler. For a total of $20, you'll have everything you need.
