Default Mini-korker question(?)

I usually make full-size korkers using 3" ribbon but today I made a mini-korker using 2" ribbon.

My question is.. how many pieces do you use in your mini's? I put in 13 but I'm wondering if that's enough?

I haven't tried a 2" one yet, but I make mine 2.5" and I use 30 pieces for them. HTH

Ash, I use 30 pieces for my full-size korkers. Should I be using the same number for the mini's?

You definitely want to put a few more pieces in there. You might also want to try the mini's with a smaller ribbon. Those are super cute! I use 1/4" ribbon and use 15-16 pieces.

Ah, good idea awhite I was thinking 13 pieces wasn't enough but I wasn't sure.

I've never made korkers with 1/4" ribbon ~ thanks for the suggestion! I'm going to have to try that

Queen, does your 15 piece korker look anything like mine? If you don't mind, could you post a pic of one of yours please?
