Hello, crafty people, please can someone tell me how you get narrow ribbon through a small hole in beads? The bead shop I went to today wouldn't tell me, it's a 'secret'. :sad:

Hi oo la la,

 

Don't they use tiger tail wire, available at craft stores and bead stores, to pull the ribbon through ?

 

Aha, Google is my friend, floss threader :razz:

Or you could use a beading needle - a bit of a bugger to get used to, but goes quickly once you've got the hang of it!

Goodness, you are both very clever - thank you! Off to the dental care section at Dischem tomorrow - why on earth didn't I think to look there? It's so obvious!!! :cheesy:

I am assuming your ribbon is thin. When I worked with thin ribbon or elastic, I use a needle threader. They are available still today but one has have to hunt for them in habadashery sores.
