    Something I’ve always wondered — how do you keep the cut ribbon from fraying? I’ve read to burn the edge with a lighter but am nervous to try it. My scissors never seen sharp enough to give me a crisp “cut”! Thanks!

      Oooh, great question. I’m a big proponent of designating a pair of scissors as my “fabric/ribbon only” pair (I’ve even made a “ribbon only” label and affixed it to the scissor handles!). Right now, I love this “Micro Tip” style from Fiskars:

      For fraying, I’ve read that dabbing a bit of clear craft glue to the edges will prevent fraying, but honestly a crisp clean cut is all you need! Happy crafting.

      It depends on the ribbon. If you have a good quality grosgrain ribbon and sharp scissors, nothing further is required. If you have a cotton ribbon that’s fraying on you, then elmer’s glue or clear nail polish painted along the edge with stop it in its tracks. If it’s a polyester ribbon (and most are), you will want that lighter- hold it so that just the tip of the flame (the coolest part) barely touches the outer edge of the ribbon . BUT! Beware of metallic threads, they burn much hotter/faster.
