When making 3.5" or larger korker bows, it's easy to just tie the korkers together using a korker box. This method is not suitable for mini korkers though--the korker pieces will run all over the place.In this tutorial, we will show you how to make full mini korker hair bows as shown in the title image.
Step 1: What we need: ribbon
14pc mini korkers (about 2.25-2.5"). Please see step 9 for how to bake korkers. We are using our Hip Girl Korkers. 1pc each color is enough for 2 bows. We're going to use the korkers from bottom to top.
Step 2: Pull korker straight on a metal ruler.
Use wood burning tool to cut and seal at the same time. We'll get 2.25-2.5" long pieces.
Step 3: Take 1st korker,
pull straight, use clips
to secure the ends (so both hands free). A little bit hot glue in center. Pull straight the 2nd korker and glue it on first one as shown.
Step 4: Again, secure 2nd korker's ends using clips,
apply hot glue in center, glue 3rd pc on as shown.
Step 5: Repeat the steps above.
The pictures of each step are shown below. Basically, balance all the korker pieces just like flower petals.
Step 6: Finally we are done.
Remove all the clips, fluff the korkers up. Here's the full, lovely mini korker bow.

Step 9: How to make ribbon korkers.
Wrap ribbon on wood dowel (1/4" in diameter) as shown in the picture, secure ends using wood clips, bake in the oven 250 degree for about 30 minutes (every oven is different. unwrap the end to see if it's done). Wood dowel can be found in Walmart or craft stores like Joann.
