Now, I do it somewhat differently, but the idea is still basically the same. I do not glue my ribbons together as I feel it makes them too thick in the center. I sew mine.

To keep them from wrapping around each other, you have to play with them to get them to separate and stand out by themselves. After you have them where you want them, spray them with fabric stiffener.

Maxine I tried mine like that and did NOT like the outcome at all. I do mine similar but I do NOTspread it open just put each korker piece on individually then i go back through all of them as a whole. I have to use a thimble to push it through.. or I try to remember to, I like to use my thumb nail but that can be disasterous. as in the eye end of hte needle go through my thumbnail making a hole in the nail, not a big deal but my other thumb on top of it was. The eye of the needle went through my thumb hit the bone and it was all bruised and swollen for a long while.
anyway.. aftr the thimble i push it threw as far as I can and then get my plyers out (I have some that are JUST mine) and grab the needled nad pull it through.

I just looked at yours and they are NOT poo. The biggest thing for helping me with mine is putting the same amount of korker pieces in each one. and the ribbon length which I think you're are all the same. If you want fuller looking put more pieces in there. How many pieces are you using right now?

I think 22-24. I know a lot of it is that I was using HL ribbon and it is just not very good. I just need to get my patience back with them. I also noticed last night, I was cleaning my 8 mo old dd room and the korkers seem really lose. Like I actually with little effort pulled one apart BAH!! maybe these are just not my calling!

OUCH!! I'm so sorry about your thumb

Your korkers are gorgeous! Definitely keep on making them the way you are

I find that if I don't spread them out, they all kind of come together (and not in a good way). I do sew mine though because I like knowing they won't come apart.

your korker pieces are longer than mine. I do mine smaller and I put 25 in mine, and then for the bigger ones i'll put like 30ish. I also use button thread it is much stronger and holds better. either button or upohlstry both work great.
