Default cutting corkers

What is the best way to cut and seal corkers? I have cut and heated with a lighter, and cut with a wood burner. What is the best way to hold the corker ribbon open while you cut it with a wood burner? I am finding it hard to keep the curls seperated and cut with a wood burner without maring up the some of the sides of the ribbon, do'es that make any since?

I have been lovin this place, plus I wanted to get to that 100 post rainbow, but sadly I still have to wait, haven't spent my 30 days yet. I have learned so much is such a short time. Like I said, "I am Lovin here.

PS, I still haven't found an easy way to cut and seal corkers yet.

I use a wood burner to cut korkers and hold down the curled ribbon with a pair of ordinary household tweezers. I cut between the two "prongs" of the tweezers while pressing the ribbon down on a flat, heat-resistant surface/cutting board. You could use small kitchen tongs, or an alligator clip held in the open position - anything that gives you a space to cut in between. Having the space keeps the woodburner from inadvertantly hitting the parts of the ribbon you don't want cut, and it's a lot safer than holding the ribbon down with your fingers, in my opinion.


HTH,

Thanks Girls, I really appreciate the tips. I think I am going to try the two prong alligator clip idea.
Thanks again,
Erika

Thanks for the ideas of the double alligator clip. I was using 2 clothes pins and it seemed too bulky and time consuming.
