Lightbulb I'm mid-korking and need help!

I'm sure the answer is here somewhere but I don't have time to look around and I'm "mid-kork" on my korker bows. I just finished baking and starching them and I'm ready to start cutting...... but I'm not sure what lengths to cut! My DD is four and I want the finished product to be about 4" across. I would assume that means cut my ribbon lengths about 4".... but I just want to see what you guys think before I get started... I don't know maybe I need to factor in a little puffyness.

Be back in a minute... THANKS!

I make smaller sizes. I cut mine 2.5" and the bow is about 2.5". I would say 4" if that is the size you want, BUT you have to use a TON of pieces to make it full. For my 2" sizes I use at least 24 pieces. Good luck!

I had to laugh at mid korking!!!! I cut my kork at 2 inches... they measure about 3 inches. I have no idea how that works. LOLOL But I know I cut at 2 inches and I just measured one at 3.

Oh- and my korkers I use 30 peices. I agree with what Alibug said- the bigger the more kork you need.

i cut mine at 1.5, 2.5, 3.5, and they always end up bigger! The 3.5 one is really big, my 12 year old niece wears these with her bengals jersey (hooday!) and it is still big on her

In my opinion 4" is too big. But I prefer smaller bows anyway...
