I have korkers that I made my daughter, who was in 3rd grade at the time that had metallic ribbon in it, and it has held it's shape extremely well. She is now a Freshman :-) My younger daughters still wear 'em.

wow, this changes everything! I'm filling Saints bows and korkers orders like crazy right now and have been trying to figure out how to best incorporate the metallic gold. Keep going back on and forth on various shades of yellow gold, but metallic is so much better! I just put my oven on to make my first metallic korkers. Thanks for sharing ladies!
Oh and here is a sample of some of my Saints work.

TOO CUTE---I love the metallic ribbon, what is the brand? Where do you find it? DD's cheer team is hot pink, black and silver---that would be great if I could find some for thier bows.

I have korked all the metallic ribbons. Silver, gold, bronze and cooper. I have the lame types and the open weaves and they all kork. I don't starch and they do just fine because I use so much ribbon in my korker bows.

YES! I do them all the time. They also look cool with glitter ribbon.

Beautiful color combos! I bet Saints fans love them, and those would sell even to football haters like me if you changed the centers. ♥
