A Ribbon Tip

I was just browsing around and saw that someone actually makes a ribbon iron that retails for $16.99. Ok, well it's a great idea, but I have a free solution for you if you need one. I keep an old curling iron in my ribbon bin. It heats up quick and works like a charm. Just pull the ribbon or lace through the iron and it's perfectly straight for any project. I pull it through fast for lightweight ribbon and slower for cotton or heavy ribbon. I have to give my smart mom credit for this tip, but I'm sure she won't mind if I share it with you. What are you using that old curling iron for anyways?
