Default Cutting and sealing ribbon with a woodburner

Hi Everyone! I keep seeing how people cut and seal their ribbons with a woodburner. I'm doing it with a lighter still. Is there a certain kind of woodburner you need and do you need a certain tip with it?? Thanks so much!

I just have abasic woodburner from HL, and I use the pointy tip. I actually prefer my lighter, unless I'm doing korkers.

I just got mine a couple of weeks ago with a 1/2 off coupon at Michaels. I think I paid about $6. I LOVE IT!! However, it can burn you faster than a dog can run away! (I have two new puppies) I have two very small burns from a session last night. It isn't at all like hot glue. These still hurt today and are really blistered. I used a quarter to go around and even the quarter got very warm. I tried the slanted tip but I changed to the pointy one and I like it much better. Mind came with four tips.

I got all of mine from michaels but I think if this one breaks I will try the one from walmart...I have gone through 2 of the purple ones that michaels sells...the first one died on me all of a sudden so I went and got another one because now I can't live without it...then after a month the same kind (purple one) died on me again Well this 3rd one is the I think cheapest one at michaels, its turquoise and I don't think it gets as hot as the purple one so it is not my favorite one but it will do for now. As for the tip I love the slanted one too...it does take some getting used to but I mine!

I bought mine from HL over 5 yrs ago and it still works great. I used to leave it on all day as I went about business during the day. Anytime I had a break I would heat seal ribbon. (I would not recommend anyone doing this....mine sits on glass inside of a shallow metal box. I dont do this anymore unless it is on the weekend as school has started for us.
