The first step to making a v-cut is folding your ribbon ends in half.

Now start your cut where the ribbon ends come together.  Cut your ribbon slanting up and away from the end of the ribbon. Before you open your ribbon back up heat seal both ends while still together.

Now you should have a  v-cut to your ribbon ends.

You can also just do the ends straight.

 

Or you can just slant your ribbon ends.
