Default Re: Ugh, my bows keep falling off!

Here's what I do. After wrapping the straps and before making the bow, I put a big old glob of E6000 on the middle thingy (where the toe thing is). I do this so it has a little time to dry...even just a little. Then, I attach the bow and hold it there for a good while, wiping off anything that comes out. After a couple of minutes of holding it, it will stay there on it's own. I let it cure overnight then in the morning I add hot glue to the front and the back of the bottom center of the bow (where I attached it with E6000).

I've also done it with hot glue and it works fine. I just make sure that there's hot glue on the ribbon covering the straps because it tends to stick better to the ribbon rather than just the straps. I hope this makes sense.
