Default Fav Korker makers

So besides buying or making a Korker box or using L brackets... what are some other ways you are holding your korker ribbon while you tie to make those pretty Korkers?? I tried a business card plastic holder, though I need bigger dowels before I know if that really worked for me.

So looking to see what others are using. This could also be a fun discussion!

I sew mine. That way you can get them centred on the needle. I never found tying to work for me.

So you just go straight in the middle and keep adding and adding korkers and wrap around? I wanted to try and sew, but I didnt think I would be able to easily do that without a big mess. Right now I can undo it and retry.

I use the korker box to fill up and keep the amounts of korkers somewhat even. Then I string them and sew them.

You add each korker to the needle and then once you've got your design you just pull the needle through to the other side. Then you just keep sewing back and forth until you feel that your korkers are secure. I don't wrap. There's not really any need too. Just be careful your needle doesn't go through your finger! It can be a bit tough to get the needle through so maybe buy a thimble for your finger. I hope that helps!

I sew mine too.

For "bow korkers" (ones with a ribbon that divides the korker into 2 halves), I put my korker ribbons all on the needle, stacking them directly on top of each other, all in the same direction. Then I pull the needle through and wrap it.

For "puff korkers" (ones without a center ribbon/like a pom pom), I put the korker ribbons on the needle in all different directions so that they keep making a circle around the needle. When I have them all on the needle, I pull it through and make a couple of tiny stitches.
