Default How do you make your V-cuts?

I thought I saw someone mention on here about using their woodburning tool to make their v-cuts, can't remember. I usually cut them with my scissors and then use my handy dandy lighter. Can you share some insight with me if you use your woodburner to cut the v-cuts?

Plus, do any of you use the exacto knife head with your woodburner? I'm thinking maybe that would work? I've only used the slanted tip on my woodburner so far.

When i heat seal with my lighter i make sure to open it a little so they are not touching with the wood burner not sure!

I cut with my scissors (the exacto knife on my woodburner is a joke, I've tried it many times, it doesn't get hot enough to cut), then I keep it folded, but open just a tad so they don't stick together, and seal with the shaft of my burner.

Me, too!!

I have tried the exacto tip ~ I ruined MANY a spike that way. Maybe I'm just not talented that way.
