Default Marabou puffs?

Ok so I was adding marabou to my bows and wanting to make some puffs for headbands. When I cut it alot of the feathers come off. What do you guys do to keep the feathers from going everywhere and coming off?

Thanks guys.
I had a field day at hobby lobby since everything I needed was 50% off.

Im adding the ostrich feathers to my little girls halloween bows to match her halloween outfit. Ill post pics when Im done.

Cut in a plastic bag, or outside. Also, spread the feathers away (as much as possible) from the rope where you're going to cut. Some are going to come off, but once the first ones do, no more will. I love adding marabou to bows, but hate cutting it - it's messy!

I was thinking today but never got around to trying it, what if you
put some hot glue where you were going to cut and once it dries cut thru
the glue with some craft scissors? Also, I am wondering if you put some tape in the spot and then cut thru the tape???

I am going to try that when I go out to my studio tomorrow. I hate cutting marabou, I usually buy the marabou puffs from Offray, then I don't have to worry about the mess.

I've tried the tape before, at others' suggestion. Apparently worked for them - not for me Hope it works for you!

The Posh N Pretty forum has instructions for this. They actually glue 3/8 ribbon where they want to cut and then cut in the middle of the ribbon part.

I go outside, and it's still a mess. I have feathers floating around my front door for days, but people love these, so it's worth it! I'm going to try the ribbon idea next.
