Exclamation How to make a Korker

Im new to the bow making thing... I make them for my daughter only and I found it to be fun....

I would love to know how to make a Korker so I can add those to her bows.

PS: Where do you all buy your ribbon?

Thanks!!!

I need korker help when I go to tie them they look horrid. I am going to try sewing them and see how they turn out. They are so cute so I definately need to figure this out lol.

i heard sewing them is a must because if you tie them the ribbon can be pulled out... you just stack them ontop of your needle. i have never made any but its info that i have read on here.

Make sure your ribbon is 100% polyester, or it won't hold the spiral shape for long. 275 F for 20-25 min. I always sew mine (stack on the needle). After it's stitched, I snip any stray ends to make it snowball shaped & spray with starch to keep its shape.

UB is great for 3/8 solids & dots. Dirt Cheap ribbon!! 50 yard spools of solid colors for $1.45/ roll!!! They do require a $50 min order and shipping is reasonable (I think I paid $13 for my $120 order). I wish someone had told me about them when I had started...

Here's my new fave korker:
Etsy :: Shelleybeansbowtique :: Classic Christmas Korker Hair Bow

simple but fun!!!

Have fun korkin!
