neat and easy
Frying ribbons are horrible. They become shorter every day and eventually you can't use them anymore. You will always see stitches. And sewing ribbons is kind of hard too. So, I use nail polish.

Clear nail polish usually works best.

Good idea. I usually just burn the ends with a candle but that makes the ends black and they can get all ripply and such.
