If hubby doesn't have an extra Michales has a 50% off coupon this week and Hobby Lobby has a 40% off coupon. They run about $14 or $15. I believe Wal-mart has them for like $10.97 as well.

Dude! That's awesome! Guess I know where some of my Christmas money is going Thanks! Can I cut on a glass cutting board?

Yep a glass cutting board works great, they can be expensive so i just out one of my self healing mats under a piece of glass out of a cheap picture frame from goodwill, ,uch cheaper and just as good.

I have an old glass cutting board that I forgot I had and bought another one So, I use it to set my glue gun on, cuz it decides to leak sometimes for some strange reason. Wonder if the hubby would notice if I snuck out to Wallyworld? (We live about a half hour away from civilization, so maybe it should wait... lol)

Id try distrating him next time your both in there! Its amazing what i can get in the cart without dh noticing. Lol. However if i disappear on my own he tends to worry, cause as he puts it....i come back with a crapton of stuff that we dont need....so ive started "cutting through" the aisles that have things i want on them and then just slip it in the cart! Its only hard on the craft aisle cause he knows what im up too!

I am interested in getting the wood burning tool. Could someone explain how to use it. Do you lay the ribbon on a glass surface and rub the tool where you want the cut? I am trying to picture this in my head!!

Then open it back up and flatten in the center with the clip, bring the thread up through and tie, turn over and tie again.
I think I might have to try your method. Might have to read it a few times to actually get it but it sounds like your method might be better.
I always have a hard time finding the middle and having a neat uniform fold.

I can certainly take some pics if that would help
