QUICK TIP: Do you have problems keeping your ribbon from fraying? I do... this quick tip works great for any opaque ribbon.
Take a piece of P K Glitz's Sticky Tape and secure it to the back of the ribbon where you desire to cut it. Once the sticky Tape is secure cut down the middle of it leaving some tape on both sides. I have removed the backing before and used the Sticky Tape to position the ribbon tails of my bows but this time as shown in the pic below I just left the backing on the tails but it will keep them from fraying! I love this trick!
