Default Dove Tails/"V" Cuts with Woodburner?!?

I just picked up a woodburner yesterday and I must say that I love it! So quick and easy! Except when I go to make a 'v' cut... I love the 'v' cut and will be super dissapointed if I can't figure out how to do it with this new toy!! How do you ladies do it?!?!I tried to search for the answer and found a few people asking the question, but no answers to it...

Hi
Try folding the bow in half and just making one cut in the bottom (on a diagonal). Does that make sense?
Good luck

Yes, it makes perfect sense and that's what I tried first but when i tried to do that, the middle point is rounded out and not sharp...kwim? And sometimes the fabric fuses together...

Yeah, Iīve tried that but with no luck. And itīs even more difficult when you have in one ribbon two or three more glued with fabric-tac!!!! I just do my V cuts with the scissors.

If you can find a metal ruler like this, it'll help.

Great. I was wondering the same thing too. I am still kind of scared to use my woodburner. I tired doing just the angle cut with the tip that it came with and with the blade but the end never sealed.

That ruler Michelle posted looks really good. I cut my v cut with scissors and then run my wood burning tool along the edge to seal it. You have to be very careful at the center point, it will round it, if you are not careful.

BTW I'm from Alabama too.

That's what I did too (when i was making that Tx size cheerbows... It gave a perfect V-cut) But, I'm gonna go looksie for Michelle's ruler next time.
