Okay, I'm convinced. :0)

Do you do it at the same temp and time? I have some offray silver, 5/8" and it seems so delicate! Is the 3/8 ribbon thicker?

Well. This changes everything! I would LOVE to kork silver and gold ribbon for my cheer bows!

Thanks for asking the question!

I baked mine right along with the other ribbon I don't think the 3/8 would be thicker. The silver I used in the above korkers is slightly smaller than 3/8 & it seemed way too thin to kork but it did fine.

Thanks ladies. I'm going to attempt this tomorrow. I think Walmart has some metallic to experiment on.

After I spray with starch I give them a shot of hair spray and dry with a hair dryer. I think the hair dryer actually sets the starch better. Must be something about the heat on the starch.
I mailed a bow to Georgia from here in CA, put it in a plastic bag then in a regular manilla envelope, even the mail didn't squish it!!
I'm totally sold on drying them with the hair dryer.

Jenni - thanks! That helps a lot.

Do you have any favorite brands/types, or is it more a matter of what's on sale? When I say "newbie" I mean noooooooobie.

I use the really thin 1/4 inch from Walmart for my metallics and I've never had a problem either. I was scared to death the first time I put them in the oven and I only basked for 20 not the full 30 minutes as I do the others, but so far no problems and they're still curly! I told my cheerleading customers to keep them fresh to spray with hairspray before wearing them.

That bow is adorable!! Does anyone have an "easy" method to heat sealing the edges of your korkers? i usually use a small flamed lighter, but it is sometimes hard doing it when the ribbon is so curly.
