Smile Re: Can you kork Metallic Ribbon?

The metallic ribbon I use is Galena from Offray. The korkers were made as school colors for a customer. "Tip" metallic ribbon holds a better look as short stands rather than long ones. Notice the metallic ribbon on the korkers looks perky and the ones on the spirit bows with the longhorn on it tend to look a little droppy. Hope this helps!

I made some christmas ones that were lime green red and silver metallic. The looked cute. (They are at a consignment sale or I would post pic) Couple of things be careful when heat sealing they tend to flame up. I made them as funky korkers (the ones that have a mix of unkorked and korked ribbon)

Also ric rak (spell) makes really cute accent ribbon in korkers and it curls and olds very well... I found some silver in it too.

Metalic ribbon is one of the few things that I still use fray check on......It's seems no matter how careful I am when I heat seal that I catch some on fire.....

Wow! on fire... I just used my woodburner on it.. It looks ok but it dont get the sharp look like you do with grosgrain...I got it out of the oven and it korked great.. Although I kept thinking I was smelling it burning.. but it was fine..
