Default HELP - Sewing Korkers

I know lots of you sew your korkers. Is there an easy way to keep it from getting all tangled up. My attempts at sewing are pretty pittiful but I'm afraid my DD will pull them apart if I only tie them. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!!

I usually keep all the korkers on the needle until I am done adding, then I pull the thread all the way through, repeat a couple of times and then tie them off. Hope this helps.

I use dental floss & a big needle & stack all the "korks" on the needle. You can arrange them as needed. Then I pull the whole bunch down the thread to the knot (make sure it's a big knot or you'll shoot a big stack of korked ribbon across the room - BTDT).
Once it's at the knot I just turn the bunch over & come back through the it & then do several stiches to secure the stitching. Then when I glue it I make sure the stitching is under the glue.

Before I started sewing them I had a couple come home from pre-school/MDO in pieces because they'd pulled them apart during nap time.
