Default How come these korkers are so puffy?

Don't want to get in trouble for posting someone else's work. I figured it out - thanks!

So cute whoevers it is. I have never made a korker, but maybe its the thread she used to do the little sprigs. If it is the stuff I am thinking about then it is pretty thick and that could add some depth in betwen each of the korker ribbons? Just a guess.

I found a great tutorial online:

This is MUCH easier than what I've been doing (hot gluing individual pieces).

I'm willing to bet that she has lots of small strands 2" to 2.5" wide.

It looks like individual threads of embroidery floss, but I can't be 100% certain about that.
