Make Your Own Korker Ribbon!

My wonderful customer, Lynn Petrucci, sent in this tutorial for making your own Korker Ribbon! It looks like so much fun and I can't wait to give it a try. Thanks for sharing this fun craft, Lynn!

Here are the basic korker supplies:

- 1/4 or 1/8" ribbon
- 1/4" wooden dowels, cut 18" or shorter to fit in the oven.
- Wooden clothespins.

Step 1: Wind the ribbon around the dowels close but not overlapping and clip ends with the clothespins.

Step 2: Spray with water bottle or lightly run under the faucet. Let the excess water drip off while the oven is preheating.

Place loaded dowels onto the cookie sheet and bake at 275 degrees for 20 min. Set your timer. After the 20 min. turn the oven off and leave the corker dowels in the oven to cool down approx. 30 min.

Step 4: After the ribbons have cooled down, unwind and see the MAGIC. Now you are ready to korker everything in site. Have fun!
