Default going to try koarkers...

So i went and got some 1/4inch dowels today at lowes. I'll saw them up, and stuff.

What kind of ribbon CAN you use to make them?

Obviously know grosgrain is perfect.

How about Satin?

Ribbon with aluminum markings on it?

polyester? (you know the ribbon with the circle things on the sides, like this:



Any suggestions you have would be great. I'm going to follow this:

I've successfully korked grosgrain, satin, the polyester with the loops like in the pic, velvet, glitter and organza ribbon.

Some types of ribbon I have to bake a little longer or use starch to get them stiff enough, but they all work well. You just have to experiment and play around to determine what works with your oven and the ribbon you are using.

I'm not sure what you mean by "ribbon with the metal markings".

Glad to know I can use satin. I was wanting to make some bows for my daughter and have a box full of satin ribbons.

This is the ribbon i wanted to kork:



I have red, white and blue in the oven right now (with the loops in it)

We shall see. It's set to 275 and i set the timer for 30 minutes. How do i know when they're done? I can't stick a toothpick in there

I keep my temp at 250 so I don't have the colors bleed as much. Also, the ribbon with the little loops is picot edged satin. It will kork too.

If the ribbon has wires in it, then you need to pull out the wire. Is that what you were talking about with the "metal on the edges"?

Cute! I usually use grosgrain but the ribbon you used looks really cute. I can see that being used in a pony-o streamer!
