Default korker bows - stiff or bouncy

I was at a craft fair today and someone had korker bows. Hers were soft and bouncy. Mine are very stiff, they hold their shape under a two year olds torture but imwondering are your korkers stiff in the bow or bouncy and if they are bouncy how do you keep their shape?

Just a guess, but were they even starched at all? I would think if they had even a little bit of starch, they wouldn't be bouncy.

I dont think they were starched, they were really kinda flat ad not what i would pay money for but it got me thinking, should korkers be bouncy and soft or stiff like mine.

I starch mine before baking and then after assembling. They are stiff, butnot so hard. KWIM?!? If they're too soft, I think they just don't hold up in the end. Although, when I first started making them, I never starched at all, and surprisingly a few of those are still around.

I don't starch mine, and they've held up for a year so far when I started making them. Mine are soft and bouncy.

I like mine stiff. I startch em before i put them to bake and i spray em with stiffen stuff after ive made the bow. So they stay nice and stiff- i dont like for them to lose their shape.
