Default Please help...my "V's" on my spikes look horrible!!!

Ok..so is there a trick to making the V's on the end of your ribbons. I have tried folding in half and cutting (which seems to be the best), I have tried cutting with a woodburner the same way and it looks absolutely horrible. Does anyone have advice for me? I need help and I am stressing out...i know over bows can you believe it?

Folding in half then cutting is the best way for me. Maybe your scissors need to be sharper. I know when my scissors start getting dull, the V's are ragged looking. Or even try using a smaller pair of scissors like embroidery scissors.

I ditto great scissors! I thought I was just "V" cut inept untill I got some really sharp scissors. I do cut them folded in half and the scissors just slice through the ribbon like butter.

My problem is that when I seal them with the wood burner sometimes I get carried away

Haha, I was stressing over this today too. I just cannot get them to look right, so I just quit for today. I have a woodburner but I suck at using it! I was pretty impressed how fast it cuts though. Thought I would let you know that you are not the only one!
