Default Re: A quick way to seal edges with lighter

Are you serious??? I have always used a lighter to seal the ends of my ribbon. I hold the end of the ribbon and run the lighter up the end of it. 2 seconds. That is it!!!

Having made over 200 clippies/bow in the past few days another tip I suggest is to have a lighted votive candle and use the flame to seal the ends. Saves your thumb!
