Thanks so much for asking iluv! I wouldn't say it was a complete success

I tried korking some satin Christmas ribbon and it worked.. ok. But I didn't get that crisp, springy curl that I was hoping for. Then, I korked my "HO HO HO" Christmas ribbon and that was a big fail. The letters were white on red ribbon and they bled. It looks bleh, but I still used it.

I baked everything at 250 degrees for 20 minutes. Maybe my timing and temps were off?
