Do you want/need the wire in the ribbon? You could just pull it out.

You might want to tell the customer to make it herself- there is no amount of money worth it!! Well, ok for maybe 25 a bow I would!!

I didn't even think about taking the wire out! I saw some ribbon I wanted the other day, it was wired. . .anyway do you just cut the end and you can pull it right out? Does it unravel; do you need to sew up the hole, etc.? Lol, that may sound stupid, but I've never done this before! Thanks girls!

You will seal the ends just the same as you do for other ribbon

Once you get a good hold of the wire, it will slide ride out. Then, just cut and seal like any other ribbon.
