Do you have a flat iron (hair straightener) or two sitting around on your bathroom counter like I do? I have been wanting a ribbon iron. You know how it is. You grab that piece of ribbon you really want to use and it is wrinkled. You don't want to drag out the big iron and/or ironing board, but you also don't want it looking messy on your project. Well, here is where your flat iron comes in handy. It makes a great ribbon iron! I also tried this with my old large barrel curling iron, and it worked, too.
Just clamp your iron on your ribbon and gently pull through. Wrinkles are gone in a flash, and you didn't have to buy a new tool!
I hope this tip can help save you some money, time and frustration the next time you pull out a wrinkled ribbon.

I am a wife, daughter, step-mom, grandma, granddaughter, niece, auntie, daughter-in-law, cousin, sister-in-law, friend, co-worker, and much more to many people. But if I can only live up to being the kind of person my dogs think that I am. They love me unconditionally. They laugh at all of my jokes, and they are always happy to see me no matter how bad my hair, makeup or clothes look. They love everything I cook, and the don't mind when I snuggle my cold feet against them on a winter's night. My husband and family love me just as much, but my dogs never see the bad in me. I guess that is why people love animals so much. When I am not being everything to my family or working my 12 - 14 hour shifts at work, I enjoy scrapbooking and crafting. I spend way too much time on my scrapbook lists online! Wanna know more? You'll have to ask!
