My daughters have the super duper expensive hair straighteners, because they flatten their hair on a regular basis. I bought a cheap one a few years ago when I straightened my hair every now and then. I just let it flip up naturally now...less work for me!!
So, this is where my unused hair straightener is now...on my glue gun table. Click HERE if you missed that post...lots of tips and tricks.
This straightener is great as a mini iron!!
These little things can get hot, so it has it's own silicone pad to protect my table.
They are great for small ironing jobs like ribbon, seam binding, strips of fabric or anything that's been stored away and comes out of the box all wrinkled.
Here's the "before" wrinkled ribbon.
Just sandwich the ribbon between the hot plates of the hair straightener and pull slowly through until smooth and flat. Keep the ribbon moving though. You may have to go over it twice if you go too fast.
Some hair straighteners have a high and low setting, but I used mine on high. It's a cheap one remember, so test yours first before ruining your ribbon.
I hope you find this a great little addition to your crafting arsenal...anything that makes our lives easier!!
Have a great day,
