Both previous comments are great ideas. I wonder if a simple lighter wouldn't do the trick too?
I cut on the bias and don't have any issues with fraying. But you can also use "fray check" to stop virtually any type of material to stop fraying. I've bought at fabric stores and at Walmart.
Here are ideas for you
Some people have used harispray, although I have not personally used, it, they say it works.
Hot cutter - seals or cut and then seal with heat or mod podge. Good luck
Hi Tracey: Spray the edge with hairspray, spray adhesive, or clear, acrylic sealer. Cut your deco mesh to the length you want it between 2 width wise fibers. Set it down on a sheet of paper, then mist it with your desired product. Wait for it to dry, then flip it over and spray the other side. Let it dry completely before using it. How long it takes to dry depends on the product that you used. Hairspray will dry the fastest. You don't need to spray the entire deco mesh—just the edge.
Aleen's Stop-Fraying it works! There are several other products all the same idea...
Can you fold the edges over and put a piece of double sided tape between the fold to keep it "sealed"? This should keep it from fraying and the edges nice and neat.
Hello. In the sewing notions departments there’s an item called fray check. It is like a clear glue fabric sealer. It may be an item to consider for the cut ribbons needs.
