Korker Ribbon Hair Bow

A few days ago I posted on how to make korker ribbon.  I mentioned that I wanted to try to make korker ribbon hair bows to put into my Halloween Treat Bags.  Well here are the results.
This is the first ones I tried.  I cut the ribbon at 6" which gives a longer waterfall effect.  These looked so cute on my little girl.  But she would NOT let me take a picture of her.
These are the second set I made.  For these the ribbons are cut at 4". 
Here are the third and fourth set I made.  All of these are cut at 2.5".
I am not going to post a tutorial because there are so many good ones out there.  And I feel really tutorialed out (is that a word?) right now.  Here is the one I learned from.

I found that using a needle and thread to sew the ribbons together worked best for me (it is the third method in the linked tutorial).  Then I hot glued the ribbon bow to the barrette.  Pretty simple.  I liked the needle and thread because it kept the ribbons in place.  These ribbons can get pretty unruly.

One thing I have learned is that you need to use a whole lot more ribbon segments than you think you need.  I used 18 or so in the above pictured bows but really should have used 30 or more each!  That is a LOT of ribbon.

Don't forget to follow me on Facebook and Pinterest.
