Default How to make a korker bow sparkle

I need help! I got an order for korkers for a cheerleading squad. They asked me to make them as sparklie as possible because they are for competition. I figured I'd use glitter ribbon but I just recieved a call from the lady who ordered the bows telling me to make sure that no glitter came off the ribbon. Apparently there is a rule that states that if you run your finger over the ribbon and glitter comes off, your squad is disqualified. Now im not sure how to make the korkers sparkle Any suggestions? Can you recommend a different type of ribbon that sparkles?

I've never used it for korkers, but what about that Offray Galena ribbon? It's not exactly glitter ribbon, but it's the stuff Michelle uses for her bumblebee wings: http://hipgirlclips.com/forums/free-....html#post5541

I'm not sure how it would kork, but it's worth a shot, since the glittery stuff is woven in, not on top. I've seen it at Michael's and Joann in a bunch of colors. Good luck!

idk how much they are paying for the bows but a squad asked me to make thier camp bows with lots of sparkle!!!!! These were standard cheer bows black/ ginger/zebra but i added clear crystals all over the white part of the zebra print... talk about bling u can see these girls comming!!!!! they really really looked good and when other teams saw them they also had to order! but i charged them ALOT per bow!!!

What colors are you working with? Have you considered some of the glitz ribbon?

What about metallic ribbon from TRR? Or using the sequin material bonded to ribbon? I've used both these teq. on cheer/drill bows that I've done in the past and it makes them pretty blingy once you spray them with craft glitter than hairspray.
