Default Question about korkers....

Do you guys cut your Korker ribbon into certain size pieces? I usually just eyeball mine and never really measure them....I was wondering if actually cutting them to a certain size would make them look better....I can't figure out how to post a pic of one of mine to let you guys see it.....I'm pretty sure there is one in my album on my profile though if you want to check it out...

I cut mine at about every 5 curls or so. Seems to work fine for me!

I measure mine when cutting, either 2 or 3 inches depending on the size bow I want when finished...

I don't measure anything I know it is bad. I normally shape after I make the bow. But I do measure the amount of ribbon I put on the dowel.

Default Re: Question about korkers....

If you don't cut the size first isn't it harder to seal the ends? I find that if I measure mine to the size I want then seal the ends before I put it together it is a lot easier. Just a thought! I use a candle to seal my ends, if you used a wood burner, I am not sure it would make a difference.

I also have a question though....some of my korkers tend to un kork or become loose, is there a way to stop this from happening?

I too have noticed that some ribbon will loose its shape over time. I have found that a little spray startch on the ribbon before baking helps it to keep its shape.
