Tutorial: How to make Korker Ribbon

I really love the look of Korker Ribbon and the fun it can add to a hair clip, a gift or other accessories. I have been asked many times how to make them so I decided to do a tutorial for you all. Here is the step by step tutorial:

Preheat oven to 200 degrees


The supplies that you will need:
Ribbon- I use most ribbon that are 3/8 inch wide but I have also use smaller and a little bigger
1/4 inch wood dowels
Wood clothes pins
Scissors
Baking sheet covered in foil or a foil pan like in the picture above



Start by securing the end of the ribbon to the end of the dowel with a clothes pin


Roll the ribbon down the dowel rod until you are at the end. Cut the ribbon.


Secure the end with another clothes pin


NOTE: I am using a bunch of scrap ribbon in the tutorial so I have 2 pieces per dowel.
Usually I use new ribbon and do one full dowel per ribbon color.


Once you have all your ribbon rolled place them into your pan. 
You can stack them, so fill it up as much as you want.
Put them in the oven for 20 minutes at 200 degrees.
Once they come out let them sit for awhile to cool.
After they are cool unravel them from the dowels.


And this is what you should have!


Use them to add to a bow, use them on a gift, in decorations etc.

ENJOY!
