Default How many korker cuts

So I LOVE korkers , but I am not sure what looks the best.

I make 2" and 3" and I dont know how many cuts to use per size.

How many do you use?

I use about 32 for each one. I like them fuller and rounder, and if I use more korkers, and shorter ones, they turn out that way.

I have a bunch of korkers that I bought from a seller on ebay; how long do you cut your korkers? I haven't even touched them yet because I wasn't sure how long & how many to use. Now I at least know 25-32. What length do you find works best? Does it matter the width of the korker ribbon? Thanks!!!!

I ALWAYS use 3/8" ribbon for korkers. and I make them 2"-2.5" inches (makes cute little piggy tail sets for my 2 year old) and for a pony tail I make it 3".
Hope I've helped! =]

For my korkers I use 1/4" ribbon.
I make 3 sizes:
1/1/2" cuts--12-14 per korker
2" cuts--15-18 per korker
3" cuts--15-28 per korker

Yes, 3/8 ribbon is definitely the best. I've found that when I have a whole dowel rod of korker, if I make 5-6 cuts on each, they turn out great.

Hope that made sense!

I use 35-40 2" cuts per bow and then I trim the ones that stick out to give it a round look.
