| | Re: Snapping elastics
I use thick crochet thread to tie up my bows just the way you use your zip tie to attach the elastic. Then I use hot glue to attach the center wrap over top of it.
All elastics stink, so I now use the seamless nylon kind - its like a pantyhose material. You have to look closely at the package to find them, but all pharmacies have them as well as target and walmart. They are a bit more slippery and more prone to come out of the hair but that can be fixed by putting another elastic on after you put the bow in.
