You can order premade flute corks... MusicMedic has them I think...? I ordered what I thought was two of them years ago, but ended up with two packs of them. You just have to push the cork back down through the tube towards the instrument side (Not the crown side). Most of the time you just unscrew the old cork, put the new one on, and then push it back in placed towards the crown with a drumstick. Sometimes you need to soak the cork a little too.
Really a pretty simple repair and it makes a big difference on a flute!
