I can help with a couple of your questions...

I use lighters as well, I just get BIC lighters, and remove the child proof thingy and it lights easily after that...

As far as cards to display on, you can order business cards from Vistaprint.com and cut slits in them and attach the clips to them, they work great, and they have free deals so all you have to pay is the shipping. Hope to have helped some

I don't use a regular lighter. I use one of the long candle type lighters - I call them flame throwers...lol. I get them at Dollar Tree....they are my favorite!! Not sure where you could get them in Aust.

I also use Vistaprints for all of my cards.

Hi,

I am in Brisbane. I use a wood burning tool. You can get them online or at Riot (art and craft store).

No sore fingers. Or you can look in the grocery store for a gas lighter (for a bbq). They have a long neck the bends.

I print out my own cards on cardstock. You can get 100 sheet packs at Officeworks. I get my business cards at Vistaprint. They are good but I like that I can print out my own cards when I need them.

If you have any Australian related questions feel free to PM me.

In regards to your inquiry for a free tutorial on Cheer Bows. I know there is plenty of info on this site if you want to dig.

If you need the tutorial quickly, I recommend purchasing the Cheer Bow tutorial from No Bow No Go. They are great and inexpensive. For $5.00 you get all the instructions step by step and an immediate download. Also, I have not purchased them yet, but it is my understanding they have been updated with a new cinch method.

For $5.00 they are well worth it.

Hi There! I found a really cool lighter at one of the local gas stations that has a button instead and it doesnt hurt your fingers or rub them raw. It was cheaper than a bic and you can refill it with butane. One of my great "cheap" buys! LOL!

I also print out my own display cards and business cards. I use different sizes, but the one I use the most is a 4x4 for my larger bows, but also have 3x3 for small and tiny bows or smaller flower clips. I just used Photoshop to make each size that I needed and then opened an 8.5 x 11 document and pasted the 4x4 image onto it as many times as I could!

As far as the pony-o's. I use the ones that do not have the metal part in the middle. I sew my bow onto the pony-o so if you used the kind with the metal you couldnt do that. Also I was afraid it might rust or something onto the bow! I just buy the Goody brand that comes in all kinds of colors. Sometimes you can actually find that brand at the Dollar Tree (not sure if you have that over in Austrailia)!

Hope this helps!

I also use a lighter, but i had the same problems... It started to kill my thumb... Well do to my whining my hubby went down to a tobacco store here and found my a jet lighter... It cost him $15 but it is stainless steel and refillable... AND it does not hurt my thumb at all.... I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS LIGHTER....

On my cards I buy them from 123print.com... My hubby made a wooden frame that fits the card snug... Then he take a paddle bit and a battery drill... He first clamps the card to the frame and then drill holes through the cards...
