Default moonstitch ribbon ends

I love moonstitch ribbon but how do you finish the ends of it? The strings always hang off even after i heat seal the actual grosgrain part of the ribbon. I am just making pinwheels out of it. Thanks for any input!

I cut mine at an angle, where I catch it at a stitch point on both sides. Does that make any sense? Then I don't have long strings hanging. And then when I seal it, I seal the string too. Let me know if you need a picture and I can take one.

Thank you so much! It works cutting by the stitch, that didn't even occur to me before. Thank you!

I angle mine, too. It took me forever to figure out how to cut them just right! Sometimes I have to quickly press the freshly sealed crocheted piece (so that it is still warm) to the edge of the grosgrain to be sure it doesn't dangle. If that makes any sense! You have to be careful with the moonstitch, though, it browns faster than the grosgrain. Good Luck!
