Its Been a While & Korker Tutorial

I've gone almost a  whole week with out blogging!
[not by choice might I say]
My husband has a job that requires A LOT
of computer time

So when I get home from work
He needs the computer

and it's not like I can say
‘Well my blogging is so much more important”
Because it’s really not!
But Still! I miss looking at everything that is going on with
you bloggers!!

So lets start on this super cute tutorial!

Do you remember those cute korker bows that
You use to wear when you were little?

They are so stinkin’ easy to make!

3/8 inch ribbon
1/4 inch Wooden dowels
an oven
Clothes pins
Elastic or string

First you want to preheat your oven to 275

Next take your ribbon and wrap it around the dowel.
{make sure you have your clothes pins ready]
Attach your clothes pins to the dowels so the ribbon doesn’t fall off

Repeat this step how ever many times depending on how many dowels you have or want.

When you are done attaching your ribbon you will put the dowels on a baking sheet
Make sure the ribbon doesn’t touch

These will be in the over for 25 minutes.
{All ovens vary so you may need to make adjustments}
After 25 minutes take them out and let them cool.

Carefully take the ribbon off the dowel.
If you are not careful the ribbon will loose its curl

Then you are going to cut your korkers to the length you want. 

I cut mine at 2.5 inches

Next pile them up and tie an elastic or string around the center part. 

Make sure the elastic or string is tight. 

Clip the excess string or elastic.

Lastly attach a hair clip to the bottom and you are DONE!!
