So, I also bought the $10 burner from Wal*Mart! I finally used if for the first time today! I LOVE IT! It saved me about 20 minutes! I don't know how I lived with out it!

Silly question, but do you just hold it near the ribbon to seal it if you aren't using it to cut the ribbon?

Not silly, I have just started using mine and I'm wondering the same because with light colors, it leaves burn marks on it if I am sealing it so I am wondering if I am doing something wrong. I tried to seal and cut some v's in white ribbon and so after ruining quite a bit, I tried just sealing it by touching it ever so slightly and it worked, but it still wasn't easy.

It takes some practice to get the hang of it. Woodburner sealing requires a steady hand. Here's a tip: I seal only from the "back" side of the ribbon. Also, keep your burner wedge tip clean (use some steel wool if your tip gets too black, that can rub off onto the ribbon). Lighter ribbons or ribbons with a high nylon/poly content can singe if you let your burner sit on them too long. Basically you don't want to blast the ends...use a light, quick, steady touch, and then "feel" your ribbon end to make sure the ends are melted properly. It shouldn't be so visible to the eye, but you will be able to feel a properly sealed end.

It really doesn't take long to get the hang of it, keep practicing! For v-notch I start in the middle with my wedge angled properly (this is most of the game-angle of your wedge) and move to the end of the ribbon. Hope this helps!

P. S. One more tip...if you know you're working with fragile ribbons (organza/sheer) try to heat seal them within moments of turning on your wood burning tool. This is especially helpful until you get used to using the burner. Organzas can shrivel and crumple badly with too much heat, but you'll learn the light touch after a few tries and wonder how you ever lived without a wood burner! I know I would never look back to the old candle and lighter days!
