    Nice, thank you. I knew about 2 of them but the other two are great too - and pretty.

      I did it myself. My real first attempt at a demonstration and i was a bit nervous. I also made one of the cuts look a bit fiddly. But it`s really just to show a rough idea of the 4 ways to cut ribbon. Just to give people the idea. I`m glad i showed 2 extra new ways for you.
      If i can help just 1 person, then it was all worth while.

        Good for you for giving it a go... I know some people are reluctant to appear on camera and some don't like to speak, but instead of having talk radio on in the background (which was very distracting) it would be nice if you told us what you were doing and why. Engaging with your audience is key with video tutorials and if you plan to do more it might be fun to watch loads of different kinds and see what works (and what doesn't) Well done for giving it a go...

          To be honest. I didn`t know what to say and since it was such a simple video i would let the demonstration talk for itself. It`s not going to be easy to think of a demonstration that no one else has done, so i`m not thinking of doing any more just yet. Thank you for your comment.

            Great video, well done! You're good at showing clearly what you're doing with your hands. Sometimes my hands are all 'fingers and thumbs' so it's hard to see what's going on, but you've done it really well.

            Just out of interest, where have you managed to put the camera? I'm planning on doing video tutorials for how to use my fabric gift wraps, but I cant decide where to put the camera so that my head doesn't get in the way!

              I built a cardboard triangle and cut a bit out for the camera. Then tilted the cardboard triangle and stuck it in place so i could look through it to see what i was filming. It only happened like that by chance. I just made everything up as i went along. Trial and error.
              I have another video showing all my buttons. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYSGVBkR83o

                I did try to have a look but for some reason the flippin' video is buffering like the clappers. I have cut loads of ribbon before, tried lots of ways to stop fraying but the only absolutely sharp, crisp cut I ever get is when I just cut the ribbon with a rexel office guillotine. I have even overlaid two pieces to get a 45 degree cut as in a corner mitre and still had a sharp faultless cut on both pieces. Will try again to see the video later.

                  You could try using pinking shears or another way i have just thought of is with a ruler and a craft knife or even a hand held rotary cutter.
