I just got the $10 one from Walmart. I think it is AMAZING . What did I ever do without it. I have only used the "blade" attachement. Does anyone use any of the others?

I bought one from HL with a 40% off coupon, I think they are normally $14.99. I really like it, it heats to 950F, comes with 4 tips but so far I mainly use the wedge shaped one. I have tried the small pointy tip but it doesn't cut through the ribbon as well...but it does have potential for designs, I can't remember the name for it.

I have one from Michael's... Walnut Hollow. Came in a case with I think about 5 different tips. I used a 40% coupon. I really might have to say a woodburner was the best investment I have made so far! It has made all my work look so much cleaner and precise. And no more refilling candle lighters!

Does everyone think this is better for sealing bows...compared to a lighter??

Once you get the hang of it yes, especially for v cuts.

I never used a lighter. I got some bows as a gift from a friend once and decided to try making them on my own. I had no instructions, so I took the gift bows apart and basically copied! lol When I noticed the ribbon ends fraying I realized I needed to seal them and I HATE lighters. I can't control them, the heat is so close to your fingers, and they only start half the time. I had a wood burner in my craft box from years ago that I really never used and figured I'd try it! It was just the $10 one from WM. I would never, ever switch to lighters! You have so much control with the wood burner. You can get the tip right down into the v cuts. I also love it for if I have a little extra glue ooze out---I just hold the tip over the glue and then clean it off. With the burner I can do this even if the glue is down between layers of ribbon. You definitely wouldn't want to try that with a lighter!! You will not regret this purchase!!

ITA. With a lighter I have a lot less control. And for me it looks a lot neater with the wb, the edges are smoother, on any cut.

I do find on white ribbon I have to be careful and sort of hover the wb near the ribbon rather than actually touch it, otherwise it tends to get that roasted marshmallow look.
