Here's a couple of "crafty" tips for ya :)



Are you like me? Do you make a big mess in the craft room and then become too lazy to clean so you just shove things in a drawer? What? I'm the only one.



Well, if you ever do decide to shove ribbon in tiny drawers or fold it causing wrinkles then all you have to do is whip out your flat iron and "flatten" that ribbon. They also make a small flat iron (mini) that is perfect for ribbon.

This is also great for bows that have become SMASHED (eeeek!) Just take your mini flat iron on the inside of your loops and round them out again!


DULL Scissors?


Cut a piece of sandpaper several times OR a piece of foil :) This should help until you decide to buy a new pair.

Pesky glue strings?


Store your glue sticks in the freezer. This will help prevent the glue strings!

Still have them? a little heat will help them go away! Plug in the hair dryer and give your finished project some heat. If you are making a bow you can use your lighter. THE FLAME DOES NOT NEED TO TOUCH just a swipe around with the "HEAT" will do the trick :)


Don't like a FLOPPY bow? Want them to be FIRM or STIFF?
Try this trick:
