Default What to do with wired ribbon

Just thought I'd throw this out there....

Have you ever found wired ribbon that you just LOVE??? ....and you know you can't use the wired ribbon in your hair bow designs, right? Wrong!
Simply cut the length of ribbon your will need for your bows and use tweezers to pull the wire out.
Works everytime! And now you don't have to avoid all those beautiful wired holiday prints out there!

I thought about trying that... thanks for the tip. I found some fabulous wired holiday prints that I had to put back because of the wire.

Really? And it always works? I think I'm going to make a pit stop at HL tomorrow. I saw some really cute Halloween prints but didn't get them since they were wired. Thanks for the advice!

I usually used the wired ribbon for packaging on my photo orders.
