Default mini korkers

Hi Ladies!

I was just wondering...

Do any of you make mini korkers for like pigtails? If so, what length do you make your korker ribbons in them and how many do you use?

How many do you use in the big korker you would put on a headband?

Thanks for any help you can give me

Thanks for your info. I haven't put the tie in the middle. I try and make them mini versions of the full sized ones at 2 1/2 in long using approx 16 pieces. They seem to turn out flat though. Maybe cutting them shorter the 1/2 inch will help make them fluffier.

I make a small korker using 11-13 pieces of 1 1/2 inch pieces. They are a nice full small ball shape. I put them on alligatorclips, snap clips or pony o's.

My bigger ones I make using 25+ pieces of 3" cut. These are not as ball shaped but they are full and have a alot of movement and are quite cute (if I do say so myslef!).

For the full sized korker I cut each piece 3-4 inches long and I fill my korker box to the top which is over 40 pieces. for the mini's I make I use 10 pieces.
If I wanted to make a round mini I would just cut them to 2 inches long.
I use 2 inch for the minis and 4 inch for the large ones.

I just wanted to say that I LOVE those bow shaped ones, they are adorable!!!

Thank you all for your replies! I made a cute ball of a mini today using 2 1/2" pieces - about 24 of them. I am going to try 2" ones on alligator clips. Thanks again!
