You know I was scared of the woodburner at first. I bought one, tried it, failed and returned it. Then I saw on here how many women liked it so I went and bought another one and I LOVE it. It takes some getting used to but doing korkers is the only way to do it. Just wait until it's good and hot and then one swipe of the burner across the ribbon and viola, cut and sealed in one swoop!
Let me tell you that after some time a little bit of ribbon residue will build up on the burner so what I do is I have a painter's sanding block and just a couple of swipes and my burner is just like new! Hope that helps. Once you get used to it, you'll think to yourself how did I ever do this the "other" way.
