I'm still wondering about the V cut as well, but I found this where it was done on striped grosgrain in 10 seconds.

But I can cut and heat seal a V in maybe 2 - 4 seconds with scissors and a lighter so that's not going to save me any time.

I was minding my business walking around Michael's and found it. I had a Joanne's coupon for 40% off but the guy gave 50% off. Any who I just tried it out in the car at my son's school and it is FANTASTIC!! I can't do a straight v cut to save my life and it does it perfectly. It didnt stick together at all!! I'm excited to play this weekend.

I line alot of single pronged hairclips and I need to cut them at 4 1/2 inches. I wonder If I would be able to cut the ribbon at the right spot without wasting any. If I could it would save me a ton of time cutting and sealing them.

I'm thinking it would probably be quicker to do it any other way (cut, lighter, woodburner) it can be done but probably not the quickest method

Michael's takes competers coupons. I think they have to be in the same area. I always use the coupons on my phone. No printing that way.

Okay, I had to get one just to play around with and I cannot get a V to cut all the way through Schiff or Offray grosgrain. It says for folded ribbon to press an additional 2 times or more and I did up to 12 extra times and it just would not go all the way through the lower layer. It does work on satin and sheer ribbon although mine did stick together at the tips and then you have to iron the crease out of the ribbon so I will stick with my old method of cutting V's. It works fine on single layers although I did have to press additional times to get it to cut through polka dots.

For cutting hairclip strips, I would mark an inch from the end of the ribbon and then every 4 1/2 inches so you know where to cut through. (You do need a bit of overhang at the start of the ribbon, hence the extra inch unless you want to just mark every 4 1/2 inches and use a woodburner or lighter on the end of the first piece.)

I have to wonder how long that very thin piece of wire will last!

thank you for this review, sounds like my normal methods are still going to be easier. I only use Schiff or Offray and was considering using this tool for some layered ribbon and cheer bows, sounds like it wouldn't be the best tool to cut through all those layers.
