Default Can you use 5/8 ribbon for a korker bow?

I'm making an OSU bow for a friend, and the red/gray ribbon is 3/8, but I'd like to add some additional coloring with a black and white polka dot ribbon. The only size I have is 5/8. I've never used this size ribbon before on a korker - only 3/8.

Will it work? I don't want to waste the ribbon if it won't look right.

Thanks!

I've never korked 5/8" before, but I think it might be too big to kork.

It will kork but it is way too loose to use in a korker bow. Sometimes I will use them in pony streamers

I made this mistake about 2 months ago. I'll take some pics later and show you the *disaster* that resulted (sigh)

(in essence, they do not form a tight curl.. trying to kork them basically ruined the ribbon).

You may have better luck than me though.

I would think no.. 3/8 is the biggest I've ever used.

I make streamers out of 5/8 korked but as others have said too loose for bows.

Sorry, I won't be able to post pics. I went through my stash last night and saw the empty bag they were in. I tossed them all last weekend.
