How To Heat Seal a Ribbon

I know this is probably so simple and silly to some of you, but I've never had to "heat seal" a ribbon before. However I was working on a project today that included this as a step. So of course I had to look it up.

To heat seal a ribbon:
Simply hold the end of the ribbon tightly over a flame (candle, lighter, etc) and move from left to right once or twice.

What a great idea for a blog! I've certainly never had to heat seal a ribbon before! I'll definitely be back!

I use this all the time! It's perfect for keeping the ends from fraying! =:) I use a candle lighter or even hold it over the stove sometimes.
