I agree with mixing up the spikes! I generally do my spikes in the different ribbons that I used for my main bow. I think it adds depth when you mix it up. As for the ends of the ribbon, I use a lighter and do as the others have said. It takes some practice but, I work in my lap off of a tray in the living room (watching the kids while I work!) so a woodburner wouldn't work for me. If you can invest in a woodburner it is much easier and it comes in handy when making the various shaped clippies as well. HTH
