I am using grosgrain ribbon to decorate purses that I am making. To finish off my purse, I have grosgrain ribbon trailing off the purse (I know, hard to imagine). Anyway, to cut the ends, I use pinking shears to give that criss-cross look.

The problem is, that it starts to unravel after awhile. Is there something that I can spray on it to stop it? Maybe something to "harden" it? I tried that liquid glue, but it was so gloppy and messy.

Any ideas?

Have you tried Fray Check? I don't know how well it would work on ribbon, but it works pretty well for me on fabric.

I do know they have glue that you can spray on too. I have never tryed it but it is worth a try. You can get it at a auto parts store.
