OMG - 60 Korkers in an hour? You are amazing! They take me forever to make, but am trying to build up my speed. They are time consuming, but so very cute!

I use 1/4 dowels to korker.

They seem to hold their shape better this way (or maybe I just think they do )
I use a rotary cutter to cut my ribbon so I can do lots of it at once. Just lay the ribbon out, measure your size for the cuts, and then hold a ruler down on top to make it easier to cut.
After the korker is made I trim the ends and heat seal. It takes me about an hour to make around 60 korkers!
