Default Re: 5.5 inch Korker Bows

Cutting/sealing 30 pieces with a woodburner takes maybe 5 minutes, and then another few minutes to sew them together and another 20 seconds to glue it to the clip...

If you only bake enough ribbon for one bow, then sure, it's gonna take way longer then 10 minutes, but who does that?
Thanks for the example...I couldn't imagine only baking enough for one. I mean the electric bill would be CRAZY then I would be charging $20 a korker because of that bill! lol nope not me!
