Default Re: How do I heat seal my ribbon spikes

I just bought Yelena's PETS tool. I will let you know how they are when I get them. They look awesome in the picture and can save a lot of time for me as I have to make sure everything is measured correctly on the triangular ruler before I cut with my wood burner.

I'll be anxious to hear your review! I tried cutting korkers with my wood burner (on a sheet of glass) and I didn't like how they turned out. I must be doing something wrong (sigh).

I use the glass out of a picture frame to do mine. It works fine...works better if you clean it after each use. ( woodburner, glass, and metal ruler)

I've been using a glass cutting board. What do you use to clean the woodburner with?

I use a damp rag right after each cut. It is hot but it wipes any melted ribbon off of there real easily. I keep a small dish w/damp rag near by to do this.

I am so happy she went through with this.

Those look great But YIKES $45.00 hurts the pocket book a little Hoping you could give a review on them.
