Default Can you kork Metallic Ribbon?

Just wondering if anyone has tried to kork metallic or radiant ribbon? I hate to waste the ribbon if it would not work.

I'm not sure if it would melt? If I don't hear from anyone who has tried it, I will use a small piece of ribbon and see what happens.

I have korked the "Galena" ribbon , I think it's Offray. It korks just fine, like grosgrain.

I just tried a piece of metallic and a piece of radiant. Both worked great. No melting or burning and they both held a tight curl.

Smile Re: Can you kork Metallic Ribbon?

Metallic ribbon will kork just as well as poly. I lay foil on the oven rack and place my metallic along with other grosgrain ribbon on it. Here is a pic. of my 1'st korkers with metallic. Give it a try. You'll love the look! These are great for cheer bows on little girls. They stand out beautifully under the stadium lights!
