Default How Do you make a whole in ribbon?

I am trying to put a snap in ribbon but what is the best way to put a whole in it first so the ribbon doesnt pull?? I tried using a knife but it doesnt cut the fabric well??

They just started carrying them at Wal Mart as well. Not sure on the price there though.

Heat up a nail and poke it through, then it will be heat sealed. You can do it by either holding it with pliers over a flame or touching it to your electric burner on your stove.

Our local Wal-Mart (TN) has the Crop-a-dile on sale for 25.00 if that helps anyone!

Do you have a woodburning tool? Just burn a hole with that! It will be sealed too.
