I do them with scissors and a lighter for that reason, I can not for the life of me get them to look good with a wood burner

I fold my ribbon in half and cut my V. While still held folded in half, I let go of my grip just slightly so that the 2 sides are about 1/8" apart. I touch each side with the barrel (not the tip) of the wood burner really quickly. Works every time.

I fold my ribbon in half horizontally to find where the center of my v will be. Then I cut down & out from the center, flip & repeat. If you try to go up & out the angle is all wonky. The only way I can get the angle right is down & to the right. I hope that made sense....
