Default Mini korkers -- help!

I know a lot of people make their 2" korkers with 3/8" ribbon, but when I do that, I can't get them to work right. The pieces of ribbon end up all curling around each other so it's not a nice, full korker, it's just a blob. Any idea what I'm doing wrong? Should I try a smaller dowel? Thinner ribbon? Just don't know...

(I am at work right now, so I don't have a picture I can show you, but I can take one at home if you don't have any idea what I'm taking about.)

Default Re: Mini korkers -- help!

are you sewing them or using elastic thread? I use 42 strands of 2 inch peices and tie them off with elastic cord. I go around them 3 times with the cord and they hold so tight that you couldnt pull a single strand out even if you wanted to sometimes when I dont tie them off exactly in the middle I get that blob effect, but this is what I do, working from the top, seperate the peices strand by strand, pulling them gently in a upward motion to seperate them and get that "poof" look. Hope that makes sense.

I sew them. Maybe I will try to separate them a bit more next time and then starch them. That might work...
