Tuesday's {Tip} Making Korker Ribbons & Bows

Okay, in last week's tutorial I shared a site that gave instructions on making a ribbon bow. This week, I found a great pdf file for making Korker ribbon bows. If you don't know what they are, they are spiral ribbons made into a bow. This tutorial shares amazing pictures, and I hope you will enjoy it!

One tip that is not on this instruction sheet that I have read other places is to thoroughly soak your ribbon with water. Once the ribbon is wet, spray it with starch. If the curl of the ribbon does not seem tight or any wetness remains, return to the oven for about another 10 minutes until the ribbon has a dry, tight curl. You may want to try that also.

Here is the tutorial. Can you imagine how beautiful that would be on a card! Wow! I can't wait to try one! And if you need a cheap resource for ribbons, my favorite shop is Ribbons and Bows Oh My! They even have pre-made Korker ribbons if you don't want to make your own. You can find their pre-made Korkers here. Happy Tuesday and Happy ribbon making everyone!

Wow they are very cool looking. I can imagine using them as flowers and just add stems. Great for scrapbooking. Thanks for sharing the tutorial.
