Korker Ribbon!

I feel so retarded! I always loved those bows that are really curly, and I always wanted to figure out how to make those bows but I didn't know where to get that really curly ribbon! I thought you had to buy it somewhere and I could never find it! Well, I was looking around today and found a website that shows you how to make it! Go figure that you have to make it instead of buying it! Well, here's how you do it!
You get some wooden dowels that are 1/4" and are about 16"long! Then you wrap the ribbon around the dowels and put a clothes pin on the ends to hold it in place! Then place them on a cookie sheet and you bake it in the oven at 275 degrees for 25 minutes! Then you wait for it to cool and then you take it off the dowel and voila! You have your korker ribbon (that's what they're called)!

Here are my finished korker ribbon! The 4 on the bottom I used a square dowel! I thought it would be neat!

I haven't made one quite yet, but here is what they look like all finished in a bow! I'll probably make one tonight! Aren't they so neat!

I like those kinds of bows too, and it seems like a lot of other people do too. I bet they will be a good seller! Good discovery.
