Default Setting Snaps in FOE?

Does anyone know if you can set snaps - either the metal prong type or the plastic Kam snap type in FOE? I'm working on a project where I need to be able to snap the elastic around a strap.

Also - what is the best/easiest way to seal the ends of FOE? And will it fray if you don't seal?

Thank you!

I'm not sure on the snaps but foe frays really easily. I use a lighter to heat seal mine.

i believe foe can be snapped. at least, i've seen sippy cup/toy leashes that have been done like that. use a lighter or woodburner to heat seal the ends, and u'll be good to go

If you decide to use KAM-type snaps... first melt a pilot hole in the FOE with the very tip of your wood burner. Just make sure the FOE fiber is synthetic.

Lay the wood burner on its stand and gently push the FOE against the tip -- VERY gently. Let the heat do all the work. Then pull it away; it just takes a moment.

Thank you so much! This is very helpful. Going to clip a coupon and head to Michael's for a wood burning tool.
