How to Stop Ribbons Fraying

The secret to stop ribbons from fraying and ruining your hard work is a very easy one.

This technique will work on most ribbons - anything with a polyester component. It will not work for pure cotton ribbons.

Simply melt the edges with a match or candle. Hold the ribbon close to the flame but don't let it touch or it may catch on fire. It will shrivel slightly so you need to cut the length ever-so-slightly longer than needed. Do this over the sink or a surface that will not burn in case you need to drop a burning ribbon!

Candles are great for when you have a whole lot of ribbons to do - otherwise you may use a whole box of matches in one sitting.
