Cool New Tool!


When you use silk ribbon...it needs to be ironed. It gets wrinkles, fold lines, and such as it is stored...and as it is used.
I'm always used a standard iron, a smaller travel iron, or a curling iron in the past...but no more...now, I have this handy little travel size flat iron!
I love it.
The photos are not perfect...but I'm trying to hold the camera in my right hand and the flat iron in my left...and that's hard...hugs!
 
I got mine on Amazon...love that place...and here is the link if you want to read more about this model...there are others there too.

 I do find that the ribbon is so thin that I have to use the very tip of the iron, where the plates meet each other without any teensy space between...but that's fine. 
 
 
Works great!

What a cool idea. I never would have thought of using a flatiron for hair. Thanks for sharing.

I never would have thought of this! Even better is that the tool itself looks cool!!
