Default How do you seal metalic ribbon?

Ok, this is a follow-up question to korking metallic ribbon. I was able to kork it, but now I'm trying to figure out how in the world to seal the ends. I don't have a wood burning tool, so I just cut with scissors. I tried a lighter, but it just kind of singed the ribbon and didn't look very good. I tried fray check, but it looks kind of chalky, white powdery stuff, on the end. How do you ladies seal the ends of this? I can tell that it will unravel quite quickly if it isn't sealed properly.

I seal mine with a woodburning tool. Have you thought about getting one? You can get one for pretty cheap at Michael's - especially with a coupon. I used to seal all of my ribbon with a lighter, but after getting a woodburning tool, I could never go back! Talk about crisp seals (especially with the v-cut)! Unfortunately, metallic ribbon can be tricky, so I don't know of another way to seal it where it still looks good.
