Do you ever try to thread ribbon or twine through a punched hole only to have the end fray and spread in all directions?
One clever remedy I’ve discovered is to put a drop or two of white glue on my finger tip and then stick the end of the twine in the glue and rub the glue all over the end.
Twist the end of the twine in the direction that tightens the frayed end, gathering in all the stray bits, until it all stays together.
Let it dry. If you are in a hurry, you can speed it up by using a hair dryer.
After it’s dry, trim off any stray bits, and the end will go nicely through the punched hole.
When you’ve finished your project, you can trim off the glued end.
For ribbon, cut it to a point and put the glue on the end and then gently shape it into a point.
