Default spikes!!

I always have troubke lining my spikes up right and keeping them the way i want them when i go to crease them. I usually use my woodburner to tack them together. I did that this time then followed a suggestion on here where you glue the last two spikes straight up, it works so much better. But i saw several people who make notches in the side of spiked instead of creasing, do this work as well as creasing and how do you know how big to make the little v cuts? Tia

Do you have a pic? I can't seem to visualize this.

I usually cinch mine using wire and they are usually not equal on all sides so i cut them a little large and even them up after i place them when cutting my V.

I have heard of cutting a slit but wasn't sure about how it worked...do u cut the slit and then cinch or just cut the slit and leave them laying flat? someone mentioned just sewing a few stitches in the middle too so i wondered if u just cinched a little in the middle maybe they would be less cattywonka when u do it. haven't tried this yet...but I LOVE the link u posted.

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.

Yes, if you have a metal template. I saw a link for one made specifically for notching ribbon, but it was like $18. Ouch. I have found that using a flat L-bracket from the hardware store works well, and then at a yard sale I found a little metal knitting stitch gauge with a corner opening that I now use. If you don't have a wood burner, I highly recommend getting one. It really makes things so much easier by eliminating an entire step. I use it to cut all of my ribbon, and it is fantastic. If you make ribbon puffs with all those little pieces they are a necessity! I can also free-hand with it to make elements for ribbon sculptures.

That picture in the tut looks like she had to cut the ribbon then just touch the burner to the ribbon. So it will cut it too then if you use a metal bracket? I'm sure hubby has an extra one

Yes the wood burner will cut and seal your ribbon all in one step. It's a lovely thing!!

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.
