Default How many korkers do you use?

When making korker bows about how many korkers do you use? I know it probably depends on the size, but just say a medium?

How do you attached them to the clips? Just glue or do you glue and tie them on?

Thanks

I sew my korkers together. then glue them to the clip and wrap one piece up over the back of the clip and one piece down over the back of the clip.

I sew mine but have a nice big needle to do it. Dritz has a 10 pack of cotton darners & I use the biggest sizes from that.
