Be sure you don't push your needle all the way through until you have all the korked ribbon on the needle, that way it should stay good and tight. Hope this helps also.
Yea I know...the wording did lighten up to pink instead of white but it still looks really cute so I am still gonna use it. I used hairspray though so maybe that's why not all of mine came off. It korked gorgeous though and tight. Thanks for the tips I only have 1 dowel rod left to do
