Default Do you use other than grosgrain

Sorry, I'm not sure what forum to post this in ,so if it is in the wrong spot let me know.

I have tons and tons of satin ribbon, mostly 1/4 inch, some 3/8 and some 1/8. Honestly I' not even sure why i have it, LOL. At any rate, do you ever use satin or nylon or polyester ribbon, or is grosgrain the ribbon of choice.

Can you make korkers out of satin?

Thanks for your input

Snap! Me too! I've been buying satin ribbon for well over 30 years now and have a lot! (Had to buy lots of grosgrain for bowmaking, such a blow!)

Can't really help with its use - I've made a few bows but they are not as 'stiff' as grosgrain. I'm making ribbon roses (Tutorial on here) at the moment as they look lovely in satin. I've used ribbon over the years for cardmaking....

And yes, satin does curl, I curled my first piece of ribbon over 15 years ago - dampened 3mm round a kebab stick in the microwave. I found it recently during a massive tidy up - it was still slightly curly! I don't think it's really suitable for korker bows as it isn't a tight curl.

Probably not much help to you, but finally admitted my ribbon stash!

I use satin korkers in the middle of some of my bows. It adds a nice touch mixed in with grosgrain. Sometimes I make a small bow for the top or middle in a stacked bow.

Thanks, so happy I'm not the only one with a good sized stash of satin. I'll hang on to it for the rose sculptures If I ever get that far. Yep it does stink to have to build a grosgrain stash when have shoe boxes full of satin. Oh well, as a gerneral crafter I'm sure I'll use it somewhere. thanks!

I don't have a lot of satin but I do box pleat it and make a bow out of that. It comes out really pretty. Satin pleats way better than grosgrain as grosgrain is stiffer.

I love to use satin for dressy bows. I've used them to make tuxedo, classic, and pinwheel bows. Also I've done christmas tree sculptures with it.

I used satin sometimes, especially for more "dressy" bows. I've never tried them with korkers but now you have my interest piqued.
