Default Help!

No matter what I do I cannot make my ribbon have 2 pointy ends (the V shape). Is there a trick to getting them even and sharp looking?

Please help!
Thanks!

PRACTICE

I do mine with scissors and a lighter as I have never been able to get the v cut right with a wood burner no matter how much I practice, just not my thing.

So, I v cut with the scissors and then run the lighter gently over it just enough to seal but not enough to make them stick together.

Thanks - I will try holding the V together and running it over the lighter. I was trying to seal it with the V open. I will cross my fingers it works, lol.

I use scissors and then run my wood burner over the edge very quickly. also, be sure to measure so one v isn't at a wider angle than the other.
