Default Let's talk korkers...

Okay, there are about a eleven bazillion different instructions out there for how to make korker ribbon, but I am guessing that the hip girls have some hints and tricks I won't be able to find anywhere else.

How long do you bake your ribbon for?

At what temperature?

Do you get it wet first?

Do you use starch? Have you found a particular brand that works better than the others?

Do you have any other super secret hints for me?

How do you attach it to hair elastic?

Thanks ladies! I can't wait to hear what makes your korker ribbon rock!!

How long do you bake your ribbon for? 27mins

At what temperature? 275

Do you get it wet first? No, I do not.

Do you use starch? Have you found a particular brand that works better than the others? I don't use starch, but sometimes I use some stiff stuff from Aleene's (sorry, drawing a complete blank on the name, since it's been awhile lol).

Do you have any other super secret hints for me? I bought a korker box 3 years ago when I first started out and it has been one of the best things I have bought. You lay the ribbon in the box and then tie it off. Once the korker is tied off, I run a few stitches through, to make sure it holds.

heh, I did find all the answers. The problem was that I found about a bazillion answers and then someone would try something and then negate their whole other super secret tip that they were in love with.

That's why I was wanting everyone's latest and greatest awesomest-est tips. I totally did the search thing--I always do that first... I just wanted to know what people were doing that was perfect and amazing.

Great idea, it'd be nice to see it all in the one spot without searching for a change hehe!!

How long do you bake your ribbon for? 20-25 minutes

Do you get it wet first? no

Do you use starch? Have you found a particular brand that works better than the others? none

Do you have any other super secret hints for me? I dont think I do anything strange or different?

How do you attach it to hair elastic? I have only ever put them on clips but I suppose I would probably play with it until I found the best way LOL

I bake at 275 for about 30minutes. I spray mine with 50/50 starch and then bake. I let fully cool before unwrapping. After they are unwrapped, I cut with a rotary cutter. If you want a 3inch korker cut 3.5inches. I think the stayflo starch works the best. Here's a pic of mine done.
