Wink Korker help

Ok, so I made my very first korker...lol I used the 1/8 ribbon first with 20 pieces. How do I get the middle to disappear? (see picture, sorry just took a quick one on my cell) Do I add more? Any input about korkers would be wonderful!!! Thanks!

I do that side as the bottom. See how the spirals want to curl the other way? If the korker were flipped over, the ribbon would spiral upwards, filling in the center if you have enough segments of ribbon stitched together.

I would suggest with the smaller ribbon to make the korkers a bit shorter too and you might need more if you want them that long

Yeah- I use that side as the bottom and the side that you tie the knot on as the top because the korks will usually flow over it. I keep expirimenting with how many Korks I want.
The smalled I have used is 1/4 inch and I used 20 korks but they were 1.5 inches long.
On 3/8 ribbon when i use 1.5 inch korks I use 15 korks because I think it looks funny with more than that.
But with more than 2 inch korks, I use 30. I think it all depends on what look you are going for. I have had customers ask me for big korkers with only 15 korks in them because they like the floppy look not the puff ball look.
