Default Re: Holy lord, I'm a moron

I had wondered about that but thought it was too crazy/easy to work or even try!! Thanks for sharing!

I get about 5 cuts per dowels and then I'm ready to sew. I have a fine-tip wood burner and I have to be careful when cutting not to melt the ribbons together so I leave a tiny space when wrapping (not even 1/8 inch). I could never go back to the old days when I was trying the heat seal all those ends YIKES!
