Jessica,

I make mine a little differently than most, but have always had fabulous success with them. I lay a piece of matching ribbon (usually the feathered satin in 1/8") in about a 12" long strip across the table. Then I alternate colors, lining the cut corker ribbon in a row across the long strip. Then, I take the ends of the ribbon strip, and tie very tightly the cut corkers in a bunch in the middle. Once they are tied in a bunch, I tie the whole thing to my covered clippie, and double-knot it. Once that is done, I give the whole thing a "hair cut", making it look as round and puffy as possible. Then I give the whole thing a good douse of hairspray to help keep it stiff. It really works. Good luck!

Christa

CZoot- That's how I used to make mine too. But then they would sometimes fall out, not matter how hard I pulled. I sew them now. I think I like it better. I hate making korkers!

I just bought a 6 in 1 korker box off ebay and can't wait to use it. If you tie them tight enough then they won't come apart. You could always tie them and then put one stitch through the middle.
