Default Re: How do I heat seal my ribbon spikes

I to do this. Its very easy to seal them with a lighter if you remember that it doesn't take much heat at all to melt the ribbon. I run up mine very quickly and it goes well. It does take practice but it gets easier as you go. Im going to give the woodburner a shot as soon as I get one for my B-day next month.
