Default Teeny weeny satin korkers

A baby boutique here sells these tiny, tiny korker bows made with the tiniest satin ribbon I have ever seen. The korkers are cute I must admit but I have no idea how anyone could kork tiny ribbon like that. They come from somewhere in California she said. Any one seen these, tried them or still make them?

I do 1/8 grosgrain all the time and have done the satin although they don't seem to do as well for me as the grosgrain. I also have some ribbon that looks like it may even be 1/16 but I've never tried to kork it
Here are some pics- 1st satin, 2nd grosgrain

Those ones are very cute, but the ones this girl has were even smaller ribbon. I just can't imagine they would be cost/time efficient!

Those are really adorable. Tiny dowels, meaning 1/8" or is there one smaller? I want to try to make those, although they seem kind of pain-staking.

1/8 is the smallest I've seen but I got some that said 1/8 the other day from Wal-Mart and they look a good bit smaller than the other 1/8 dowels that I have. And really the ones I make aren't bad at all time/cost wise because I only use 12 korks for mine- they were the 1st bow I ever made and they're still my favorite!
