Default What do you use to put your korkers together with?

Box. No box. Wondering if I need to put something together so I can do these.

Thanks in advance girls

I have the box but it wasn't for me. I use needle and thread and just push the needle through the center of each korker and then wrap the thread around the center a few times then sew knot.

No box. Stack 'em on a needle & sew - SOOOOO much better than tying them together!!

I've tried both....stacking and tying the together just didn't work for me. I could pull some out and that wasn't what I wanted. So I sew mine and I have great results.

I also stack on a needle and sew. I think it's much less frustrating than stacking!

I sew through mine about 3 or 4 times, then tie a knot, and voila! Not as time consuming as you would think.

***TIP: I thread my needle, then shove the end of the needle through the top of a pencil eraser. This way, they are all stacking on top, and I pull the thread through all at once.

Hey, Ty....I believe it was you who taught me to 'cut' my korkers while they were still on the dowels (with the wood burner) I first I was like WTH, how can that be done without burning the heck out of the dowels. But it does work! And I have to thank you, Ty, for the tip. It saves me time, and the korkers are all the same length using this method. I now can whip them up in no time!

If you wouldn't mind, I would like to know more about this...I have a hard time getting mine to look right when I cut them. TIA

Nope babe....not me. Sorry. I cut mine by counting the curls, like count 5, then cut.
