Default V ribbon end cuts ?

I am struggling to make my v cuts even on my ribbon ends. I feel really dumb but mine are just bad and it is driving me crazy. I won't even post a picture because that's how bad they are.

ugh! I know it's a silly problem.

I was going to say that same thing...lol.

I like to use a sharp scissors rather than a woodburning tool or exacto knife.

LOL! That's what I do! But what I am struggling with is getting them even on both sides. Like the angles even...... one side is always a little different than the others. And heat sealing them is a whole new problem for me.

That never bothers me but I guess it would if you sell them. I'm just happy to get them sharp at the middle!

I was having trouble sealing the point of the "V". Now after I make the cut, I keep the ribbon folded in half and carefully heat seal it with a lighter. The point stays more pointy for me.

I was having trouble with heat sealing the point also. I never thought about sealing them while still folded. Thanks!

I do the same thing. I fold in half, cut at angle with scissors and then seal with a lighter while it's still folded. Just make sure the cut sides aren't touching or you will seal them together.

I always unfold before I heat seal. I'm gonna have to try & do it while it's still folded!
