Default Wrapping Ribbon for Korkers

Hi ladies! I am making korkers and am just wondering if there is an easier way to wrap the ribbon around the dowel than by hand. I swear I saw somewhere that someone used a drill?? Any tips on going faster? It takes me forever!

I tried the drill thing and it was a disaster!

I make hundreds of them regularly and have just gotten good at doing it by hand. I do have some wicked carpel tunnel, but its worth it in the end LOL

It also helps to have smooth sticks. I know new sticks slow me down because they are kind of "prickly" so smooth them with some sandpaper to help it go quicker. Multiple wrappings will naturally smooth them (and make them smaller, thats why I replace my sticks after awhile)
