Default Re: another korker question

i was looking for the answer for this too!!!! but u asked it first!! im getting really frustrated because i cannot seem to get my ribbon nice and straight... it comes out all bunched up or in areas where it should be curled its flat messing up the whole thing!! i used to tie them and they would come out great but then the pieces would come out... thats y i switched to sewing but now they are a hot mess... I usually stack them just one right on top of the other i cut them to 2.5 inches any help anyone

I sew mine.. but after trial and error.. this is how I do it

First off I use white Nylon Bead Thread comes in 300ft rolls in the bead section of walmart for like 2.00? maybe 3.00. I dont use a lot of thread I use the right lenth for the job persay. I Stack my korkers on my needle but I dont do it all going the same way i mix it up a tad. And after they are all on my thread I go back threw the korkers.. if i get them all the 2nd time around is another question ( is why i use bead thread it supports it even if i dont go threw again)

Then after i tie and cut.. i fluff it up make it look nice. and then I spay HAIRSPRAY or you can use starch w/r or do nothing.. Its whatever you decide.

Its trial and error to get them the way you want.. just dont give up my first 25 Korker bows looked like crap and i kept going

Glad I could be of some help

I cut 2" segments. I stack them on a threaded needle & fan them out. I alternate the colors so it is an even mixture. I thread all the way up then all the way down, then tie off & glue to my clip. Some times the ribbons curl over one and other. You have to separate them and fluff after assembly. Then I spritz with starch again & let dry. Hanging upside down to dry can help fluff it a bit more too.
