| | Re: am i not sealing correctly? and what clips do you use?
I would say you are not sealing them enough, I use a lighter or woodburner depending on what I am sealing. I have never had an issue of fraying afterward.
I get my clips from hair parts. You can also get them from sally's or hobby lobby(but HL is a bit $$$)
I have never used the clips teeth. I do use a no slip (shelf liner, but there are lots of options out there!)
