I do most of mine with 3/8, but I have a lot of korkers made with 1/4 sheers, that is REALLY pretty, and a lot of 1/8 little mini bows. They are adorable, you just cant make them very big, and you use a lot of ribbon on one tiny bow..

I use 1/4 for my mini korker clips and they sell like wild fire. Super adorable. good luck looking for your 1/8 ribbon that stuff if super hard to find in a good variety of colors. my local hancock store had some on clearance a while back and I picked up a few spools.

I only use 1/8 for korkers. I get the ribbon at walmart, joann's, and I think it was ribbonqueen, it's been awhile.

I make the majority of my korkers in 1/4" ribbon. I have done a few in 3/8" and some itty bitty ones in 1/8" but over all I greatly prefer the 1/4" size. I am looking for a better selection of prints in the smaller size though.

I don't have any pics handy to post but I definitely prefer the 1/4" over the 1/8". I usually only make the 1/8" for a particular customer of mine that likes it better.

I have seen the 1/9 with polka dots, but have never found the 1/4 with prints. Where are you finding this at? Would love to play.
