Korker Flower Hairbow

Hi Ribbon Retreat Readers!! It’s Ashley from Sweet Mama J’s Boutique.

Today, I have a Korker Flower Hair Bow tutorial for you, just in time for Easter!!

I absolutely LOVE The Ribbon Retreat’s beautiful selection of ribbons, especially for fun hair bows!

Here we go…

For this project I used:

3 – 8 inch lengths of 7/8″ Double Ruffle Ribbon in light pink
3 – 7 inch lengths of 5/8″ Solid Grosgrain in white
Enough ribbon for Korker bow in 3/8″ Delight-Sheer/Satin in white, 3/8″ Solid Sheer in lime, and 3/8″ Swiss Dots in pink with white.
1- Lined alligator clip in white
1 – 10 mm crystal sticker
Fray Check
Hot Glue

Take 1 of your pieces of Double Ruffle and fold it in half. Make sure you make a crease that you can see when unfolded.

Unfold it and put a small dab of hot glue on the crease.

Fold bottom end up to meet the crease making sure to secure in hot glue. Repeat with the top end, remember to make sure to secure in the hot glue.

Repeat all three steps with the remaining 2 pieces of the 8 inch length and all 3 pieces of the 7 inch length.

You should have ended up with 6 loops.

Take the first loop with the cut ends up and put a small dab of hot glue on it.

Put the second loop on it cut ends facing down so the 2 loops form an X.

Put a small dab of glue on top of your X and put your third loop to cross through the X, as shown.

Repeat the steps with your remaining loops to have 2 flowers, one smaller than the other.

Put a small dab of glue in the middle of the larger flower and place the small flower so the petals straddle the petals of the larger flower.

Press together firmly.

At this point you can do anything with the middle of your flower, such as, add a button, some cute rosettes, a ribbon sculpture or even just keep it the way it is.

I have chosen to add a Korker bow to the middle to make it fun and festive.

I made the Korker bow with the free Korker Bow Instructions found on The Ribbon Retreat’s website.

After making my Korker ribbons, I cut them all to about 2 1/2 or 3 inches.

Make sure to seal your ends using your preferred method.

For my Korker bow, I used the needle and thread method to attach them together and then secured the thread on the bottom of my Korker bow.

Put a small dab of glue on the bottom of your Korker bow and attach it to the middle of your smaller flower.

 

Put a very small dab of glue on the back of your crystal and attach it to the middle of your Korker.

Gives it a little bit of bling, that all princesses have!

Put a small line of glue along the top of your alligator clip and attach to the back of your large flower.

Press firmly to secure.

And there’s a beautiful Korker Flower Hairbow.

Just in time for Easter!!

Think of all the other occasions that would go perfectly with this cute Korker Flower Hair Bow!!

    Nice corker variation. Corker ribbon is the one time I use fray check. However I place it on the full length of the corker ribbon every 5″ or where ever the cuts will be. Then when I cut it, both ends of each cut are already sealed. I have found this to be the easiest and surest way to make sure each corker end is sealed.

    So CUTE!! I love the idea for using 7/8″ ruffle ribbon. I also like Sherrie’s idea for Fray Check.
