Default Re: how do i "glue" two pieces of ribbon together?

I have tried hot glue and it left what look like grease stains where the glue was. I have tried 2 different types of spray adhesive 1. looked good until it wasn't strong enough and the pieces just fell right off and the other left spots all over the ribbon like little stains. I have also tried to put the ribbon in my sticker maker and it wasn't strong enough. I would like something that it strong enough so you can't easily pull it apart and something that doesn't leave stains.. Any Ideas?? Please HELP!!!
you should use heat n bond. do a search for cheer bows and you'll get lots and LOTS of tips and instructions for layering ribbon for cheer bows. also, i highly recommend springing the $5 or so for the NBNG tutorial. it's a keeper!
