is there a tool that cuts and embosses this ribbon at the same time? i've had a look at one from wilton but i don't think it does the same type of embossing in the pic

is this the right tool?

Wilton has another tool that I think does cut and emboss at the same time...icon_rolleyes.gif I have one and I've used it for my Wilton class, which was a while back - but you can go to the Wilton website and check out some pics...

HTH!! icon_biggrin.gif

yes thats the other one i managed to find. i don't think it does the type of embossing that i wanted (like a little track of indents). the one from kitchenkraft link is also wilton, but it only cuts/embosses one line at a time. i thought maybe there was a cutter out there that could just make the ribbon i wanted all in 1 go.

For the same type of embossing, you need something like the perforating blade for rotary cutters - see here http://www.crafterspaperandsupply.com/39rotaryhandcutter.htm (scroll down)

To make such pattern, it has to look something like that - http://www.ksprintingmachinery.com/catalog/popup_image.php/pID/146 - this is printing machine part, not the blade. I couldn't find good picture of the blade itself.

Now and then I play with the idea to buy it for myself. But till now I am content with plain point tracing wheel from sewing supplies - you can buy different sizes and they make different patterns.

My guess is this one: Windsor tools Boxed Ribbon Cutter
http://www.windsorcakecraft.co.uk/www.windsorcakecraft.co.uk/info.php?p=2&cat=95394
I have it and it makes very nice and beautiful ribbons.
You can find it on ebay too.

I have used the one from Wilton and that is not what is used in the photo. It looks to be done in a template or some kind of a (wheel impression maker?) best way to describe icon_smile.gif Whatever it is it looks like a pretty neat tool to have around.

i managed to find other ones by FMM - the multi ribbon cutter, and PME

can someone tell me which brand makes small stitch marks?
e.g. in these photos you can see the different sized stitch tools used on the elephants

I agree with majka_ze, that looks more like it....maybe a craft tool for clay would have something like that??

i think the tool you ned is the PME mutli ribbon cutter

its cuts the strip and adss the indents at the same time. this cutter will also make staright cuts with no stitching and a rick rack design, by interchanging the wheels.

The small stitch marks were probably made with a regular pattern tracing wheel from the sewing department. Only costs about a dollar...I used it on one of the cakes in my photos, it's a naughty cake so I won't post the link here but it's the one with the white shirt.

I agree with Sugarshack and CakesbyLJ, If you are looking for something that cuts the ribbon and adds the stitching at the same time, I would use the multi ribbon cutter. The only thing I don't like about mine is that the plastic wheels are not as nice and sharp as I would like them to be, so the don't always give me as clean of a looking cut as I would like. Using a pizza cutter and then a stitching tool can give the same effect, but just takes a little longer.

wow edna from youtube! thanks for your videos

and thanks everyone for your input. i think i might go with just the pme type cutter rather than the ribbon type cutter even though it'll take longer to make the ribbons. :S
