Tuesday Tip: "Ironing Ribbon"

Today's tip is a quick one...

What do you do to straighten out a piece of ribbon or thread??  
The next time you need to, try using a curling iron!  All you have to do is place the end of the ribbon between the clamp and pull it quickly through.  
Oh, and to be safe, be sure not to use this tip when working with fuzzy fibers.

Have a Terrific Tuesday!

What a wonderful idea. Much easier to grab the curling iron than to drag my big old iron out.
Thanks for the tip.

I agree ! I purchased a cute pink iron for ribbon a few weeks back. I needed it the other day and after opening the package I thought this is just like my flat hair iron. I could have saved my money. The other thing I'd suggest is make sure the flat iron is clean from hair product or you might get dirt or spots on the ribbon you plan to use. oxoxoxo
