3/8 inch ribbon (a lot) and then make sure to cut your ends straight across. I have seen some that were cut at an angle and it makes the whole bow look odd. Size of the ribbon pieces matter too but if they are too big once you form the bow then a little snip here and there should do the trick.

Korkers were the first bows I ever made and it took a lot of trial and error to get that perfect look!

Cute, cute, cute! Can you tell I've experimented with korkers a little?

How many pieces do u use with the 1/8" ribbon? I measure mine the same way, by spirals. I use probably over 30 pieces with the 3/8" ribbon, but I haven't done them with 1/8" ribbon yet. I really like how yours look!

Thanks! I use 36 pieces to get them nice and snowball round.
