Default Wood burner questions...

I finally bought a wood burner today!!

What do you girls use to cut your ribbon on?? A cutting board? My dh will KILL me if I burn our dining room table!!
I'm getting ready to try to hot fix some stones w/ it! and I have some st patty day korked ribbon that needs cut.

Can I use something other then a cutting board? it bill burn whatever I use won't it?


I'm a little nervous to even turn it on because I know something is going to get ruined.

I use a glass cutting board on top of a measuring mat. It is awesome! You can also use a glass plate or whatever. It does leave gunk on it, but it does not burn.

Just a word of caution with the hot fix stones. Be sure to watch your ribbon around the stone to be sure you are not touching it with any part of the wood burner. I have singed many ribbons and had to start over or find a way to cover it some how. Just wanted to throw my 2 cents out there.
