Default Korker Ribbon Dowels

What size length and width dowels do you use to make the Korker ribbons?

Default Re: Korker Ribbon Dowels

I mainly use 1/4" diameter dowels and cut each 3 ft long dowel in half, giving me 2 - 18" dowels from each. My oven is just over 18" wide inside, so that size works quite well for me. I've only done 3/8" wide ribbon and 1/4" once, but I've been thinking of doing some teeny ones. Just don't know if I'll need to get narrower dowels for that. Does anyone else make the teensy korkers out of 1/8" ribbon?

From each 18" piece of korker ribbon, I usually get 6 - 3" korkers + a little extra that I put in my korker scrap bag to use on clippies or as bow accents.

I use the green color size that you get from Home Depot. I wish I could remember the size of that. I have seen the teensy ones and they are made on REALLY small dowels. I want to try some.

Thanks ya'll! I made them a long long long time ago when I was a kid for a project and I used a pencil, but that took forever, lol! I will go out and buy some dowels. Do you spray them with anything??
