Default Re: HOW do you get your korders to look so full and puffy?

ADORABLE! I just finished 2 mini korkers for my flip flops. I am debating on how to attach them. Any tips?

These are about 2.5 inch - 3 inch korkers with about 30-35 pieces.

See how tight these korker pieces are? I'm not trying to say I make the best korkers or anything but I think the tighter "curls" make the korker into that elusive "puff ball" shape we're all striving for.
