Step 3:
take butane (grill or cigarette) lighter and burn end until slightly melted (PLEASE NOTE: MOST prepackaged rickrack available in sewing/craft stores is polyester. So please check prior to using this tutorial to make sure that your rickrack is polyester and not cotton)

Clean, perfect rickrack edge = attention to detail = superior finish!
