Default Korkers

I don't remember which thread this was discussed in. I just wanted to show my new korker bow. I used 5/8 inch gg ribbon on 1/2 inch dowel rod. Thoughts??

Great start! I love the colors you used. What I would do is probably add in more korker ribbon next time to make it a wee bit fuller. Also, play with it and separate the ribbons from one another.

I use 3/8" and find it makes a nice tight bow.

Thanks! I normally do all my Korkers with 3/8" and thought I would try something a little different. I made this one for our School's Cheerleaders. They wanted something that would bounce with them, but they didn't want a normal Cheer Bow. I used 30 pieces at 6" each. I probably could have used more, and probably shortened them by about 1 inch to stand up more.

You might want to try something more like this:

They are pony-o korkers & they *really* bounce. Each piece is half a dowel rod long. If you click backwards you can see more pics.

Very cute! I love the fluff on them. I also make just the Pony O korkers. Didn't think of making them with Marabou! Love it!!! Thanks for the ideas.
