re: Attaching ribbon to fondant?

I read (I think on Cake Central) that someone attached a strip of wax paper to the back of ribbon they attached to a buttercream cake to stop the butter from soaking into the ribbon. Someone else warm iron and ironed wax paper over the back of the ribbon and they said it put a light coating of the wax on the ribbon. I’m getting ready to attach ribbon to a buttercream cake this weekend so I’ve been researching as well. :) My main concern is the ribbon soaking up the butter from the buttercream.
