I'm terrified of my woodburner. So it just sits in a corner. LOL.

So I use a 'taper' candle. I precut all my ribbon (while watching TV, or whatever), and then I light the candle and sit there and seal the ends. It's actually faster for me to do it this way, than use the woodburning tool because I can go faster with cuts, and with heat sealing - compared to the amount of time it would take me just use the woodburner.

Hope that helps!

Thank you for your recs! Now, forgive me if this is a really stupid question...but where in Wal-Mart or Joann's do you find woodburning tools?

Back in the craft section near the wooden dowels and letters and such.

Wow,
Thanks for the great question. I was going to post the same thing. I want to make the pumpkin and turkey bows and used the Stop Fraying by Aleene's. It changed the color of the ribbon and after a whole day of drying, it is still tacky to the touch. I am going to Michael's to get a woodburning tool. Are they hard to get the hang of?

Not really, they do take some practice. But really they are the best!
Do remember to be careful around kids, the woodburner is EXTREMELY hot!!!

HTH,

I am still scared of mine! LOL I attached my cord to the edge of craft table. That way if I drop it, it won't hit the floor just dangle in mid air. It wouldn't be good if I burned a whole in are hardwood floor, plus I would probably get burned reaching for it.

Until we moved this summer, my heat-sealing tool was my gas stove! Much quicker than the lighter...
