Default Have a question!

I finally purchased a wood burner and donīt know how you ladies work with it. Do you draw the figure on the ribbon and then pass the wood burner to seal and then cut or do you pass the wood burner until the figure just comes out with the heat of the WB? Does that make any sense? jaja

I don't know about the other ladies, but I don't draw on mine first. I just do it all free hand, which is why I stick to simple, doodle-like shapes. Many of the more 'complex' clippies I make are just a combination of very simple shapes.

Whenever possible, I use coins or a metal ruler to guide my woodburner so that my circles and lines are more precise.
Have a great day! ~ Tonya
