You might already know this quick tip, but I had to share it with those of you who don’t. Until now I have been using Fray Check on the ends of ribbon to stop the fraying, but melting the ends is now my preferred method to stop the fray. To start, the ribbon needs to be made of a synthetic material. Cotton ribbon won’t work with this method.
Just by holding the ends above the rising heat, the synthetic ends melt together fast…making it so you have no more fraying ends.
