Default HL ribbon problem

I used 3/8 ribbon from Hobby Lobby to make korkers. Not the best idea! The ribbon does not hold it's shape! I wrapped the ribbon very tight around the rod, starched, and baked. Has anyone else had this problem?? Maybe I just made a beginners mistake!

THIS!! Do some searching on here and you can find much better sources for ribbon. In all reality HL ribbon is not a bargain at all!

Their solid grosgrain ribbon is very flimsy and hard to deal with.

It's because HL solid colors suck! I like Ribbonandbowsohmy or Ribbon Place for solids!

Does UB work well w/ the double sided tape for lining clips? I got some ribbon in a gp buy once and it doesn't work well w/ the tape.. BUT I don't know where it came from.. it was the same place the preppy ribbon comes from.

3/8: 1.65
5/8: 2.75
7/8: 3.50
1 1/2: 6.60
2: 9.90

HTH!
