1. DO use floss threaders to get larger ribbons and those crazy fibers through smaller holes works like a charm. You can get 25 at your local grocer for around $3.50 (at least in Texas.)

2. DO cut it at an angle and pull the point through and trim.

3. DO wrap tape around it for a firmer end.

4. DO dip in liquid glue and roll for a firm tip to thread through.

5. DO use a tapestry needle.

6. DON'T lick it! Any part that touches your project will sure to age quickly causing discoloration spots. Not to mention all the bacteria that's in your mouth! If you have to lick it then be sure to use a mouth rinse before hand! LOL!
