Korker ribbon is a fun project for a weekend afternoon!  True it is time consuming, but it is also very rewarding!  With just a little patience and a lot of ribbon you can make quite a mound of korkers!  It is like Christmas when I open my oven and see all those wonderful Korker Ribbons!

I know one thing for sure, I am going to invest in a wood burning tool.  Using the cigarette lighter to seal the edges begins to hurt my thumb after a while and with the wood burning tool you can cut and seal all at the same time!
