Default Heat Seal in v cut with wider cut?

Hello Ladies!
I have read the tips on how to heat seal and cut a v angle at the ends or ribbon which I have been doing some time with my wood burning tool. However, I have been having to cut 1st with my scissors, and then heat sealing with the wood burning tool since I am unable to achieve the wider angle I would like with the metal ruler. I read to line up your metal ruler, and then use your wood burning tool to heat seal and cut at the same time the v cut. However, this is a rather narrow cut and I would like a wider angle and since the angle provided on the metal angle rulers don't go this wide, I don't know how to achieve this except for cutting it in the wide angle I need with scissors, and then word burner to seal the ends after being cut? If anyone can help me with this to help speed up my process when making bulk amounts it would be sooooo helpful please! Thank you!!!

Veronica

cut with your scissors to the angle you need, and then use the SIDE of your tool to heat seal it, not the tip - stays straight that way.

awww, thank you, but see that's what I am currently doing, I just wanted to see if there was a way to achieve this with the angle ruler that would help me go through it faster but using a wider angle with the angle ruler. Thank you!

I have a triangle metal ruler that I got at hl as part of a set of metal rulers. It allows me to cut a much wider angle than just using a regular ruler. I still think that it is faster to cut and seal for me though because you have to make sure that you have the triangle in just the right spot on the ribbon or else you end up with cuts that are different angle. hth
