The spiral ribbons are called korkers. They are super simple to make. I know I've seen free instructions. Let me check around and I'll post them when I find them. Also as far as keeping the ends from fraying, I just use a lighter and lightly brush the ends so that they kinda "melt" a little. Just be sure not to hold the ribbon to the flame too much or you will end up with thick looking ends and possibly discolored ends (like brown) on the ends.
