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.

Is there a way to cut and seal all in one step? I was debating on getting a wood burning tool, but I thought you could use it to cut the ribbon too. I use fray check right now.
If you check out lynns blog her method is like the one allicat uses and she posts pictures with it. It is the hairbow wonderworld blogspot mentioned earlier in the post. Just click that link!
