Default Re: How to make better korkers???

Ok I have a question about attaching the korkers!

I sew mine, I just go up once through the ribbon, I dont come back down like some people have said because I did that once and it did not come out well. So how should I attach it to the clip? I'm afraid if I just line a clip and super glue it, it wont stay well.

Any advice?

Thanks ladies!

I'm no expert , but I sew also, I go up and down a couple of times, then I glue it to the lined ali clip, then take one of the underneath pieces and wrap it around the clip (just like a center of a bow).

Me, too...but I haven't tried gluing it, too. Hmmm...might just have to give that a try!

You know, someone mentioned awhile ago to leave the ribbon right on the dowel and count the spirals, then make your cut. That's what I've been doing. (these were cut on the 8th spiral, on 1/4" dowels) Sooo much easier. And doesn't mark the dowel like you'd think (that was my first question).

564tamara....I wonder about the premade korker, as I've never used it. I wrap and bake my own so I have control over temp, starching, etc. With the premade you pretty much have to take what you get, unless you know personally who you're buying from. KWIM?

I would try making them with you korker ribbon not as long. I use about 35 pieces per korker maybe more. I always starch the ribbon well. I cut my pieces just pass the 4 curl.

Mine end up looking like this. A few of these korkers needed to heat sealed in this pic.

That's what I was thinking...I got some dowels so I can make my own. Do I just buy a can of spray starch like for clothes? I got the premade in a destash and it's definately not starched. How long should I bake them and what temp works good? Thanks!!

Thanks! I will try 4 curls on my next one after I try and fix the ones I got started.
