Thanks bstimpert! That definitely answers my question

I couldn't function without my wood burner... it's like a 3rd hand to me. You can't cut folded ribbon with heat because it will fuse the fibers together. They have to be separated (as in the tut). However, you can cut and seal korker ribbon in one step.. just cut on the dowel.
