I found this takes some practice. You have to move the ribbon through the flame rather quickly to seal the edge and not burn it. I use a long lighter, like the kind you use for grilling. That seems to help, I have more control over the flame. HTH

I had this problem too until I used my woodburner to cut the ends. It seals them perfectly. Hth!

I don't let them touch the flame, just get them close enough for the heat to do it's job and move it quickly.

ditto

I also think the woodburner would work, but I have only used it on grosgrain ribbon thus far

I use to have that problem too until I started using the wood burner. I just lay a metal ruler on the ribbon and cut against the ruler.

i guess i should have mentioned that i use a wood burner....maybe the question should be, how do you clean the black stuff off the woodburner so it doesnt get on the ribbon?
