Once you have how many strips you want on your needle, make sure they are arranged how you want them and sew through the middle a couple of times. Wrap your thread around the middle a few times and tie in the back. Now you can take a look at it and if you put each one on the needle close to the same spot in the ce nter, you shouldnt have uneven ends, but if you do, just use your scissors and snip off any uneven tips and heat seal. After your finished and its attached to the clip, you can spray starch again if you want to and hang upside down to dry so it might remain a little more stiff-I dont and never have a problem.I DO NOT make korkers all the time because they are time consuming and I dont know a fast way to do them. These are just some tips I picked up along the way. Someone else may have a faster way but this was the easiest way for me so it may give you a start so you can figure out some tricks of your own and become the "Queen of Korkers" LOL! Have fun and post pics!

Awesome, I am going print that to see which he wants to do. Well, if he isn't being too stubborn and is too set on making it "his way". lol

Ok, so I'm not always going to have someone around to put their finger on the string when tying a knot ...please tell me you all have some tricks! Have you ever used yarn or something that might not go loose?

That is why I sew. Also, when I was just tying them, they would come loose when pulled on sometimes. But I may not have been doing it correctly...

Yup, I sew mine too. Tying just did not work for me. I got needles called soft doll needles at Joann's, they work awesome. They're huge, like 3" or 4" long, so all the korker pieces fit on there, and once you get 3 or 4 pieces on there, it sits up by itself, so you can use both hands for the ribbon.

I tried that korker box and it was useless for me.

I tried the pin stuck in a piece of board to sew them, again useless.

The easiest way I've found to sew my korkers is blue tac. I'm in Australia, so I'm not sure if it's the same name there, but I just use a blob of blue tac on my desk, put the pin in it, layer the ribbon and then sew. Sooooooooooooo much easier than anything else I've tried and far less mucking around.

HTH!

I dont know what blue muck is. I will have to see if I can find it. But I use a eraser on the bottom of the sewing needle if that helps anyone.

Those of you that tie them, do you ever have trouble with them coming put since they aren't sewn?

We always called it fun tack back in the 80's lol. Except, it is NOT fun cleaning it off the walls when you move out of your parent's house after graduating from high school! That stuff would NOT come off back in the day! Hmmm, might try that though, if the "removal" process if better. .
