Default V cuts with a woodburner!

hi i know i just posted about using a woodburner or a hotknife to make vcuts for cheerleading bows but...

i just went out and bought a woodburner to try and do the v cuts...im lost i need help!

i used this tip to make my vcuts:
http://www.sawdustconnection.com/ima...hading_Tip.jpg

is this the wrong tip?
i cant get it to work right!
i am cutting like 3 to 4 layers of fabric that a layer together and its turning the edges black!

i tried cutting it with scissors first then sealing the adge but my cuts are not turning out straight becasue i am using a 3" ribbon aand folding it in half! can you pleas help! or give any tips you have! i know im young and have no idea what i am talking about, but any help would be great!

here is a picture of one of my bows to help you get an idea of what i am talking about...the tails were cut and then sewn but i want to start sealing them!

I actually like to use the barrel of the woodburner. (vertically)
Or, the one that looks like a flat-head screwdriver.

You have to be really quick. It doesn't take long for the heat to seal it. I cut mine first and then seal by folding in half and snipping at an angle. Takes practice

I really suck at this so I bought a metal triangular ruler that you can find in the doll house area in Hobby Lobby. It makes it so much easier for me.

Thanks for the tip. I was looking for something to solve my V problem... didn't know what, I guess you found the answer.

I will try the tut first, thanks Shelby.
