Default Re: Glue Shows Thru Ribbon - Any Tips?

My fingers are so used to it, that it doesn't bother me anymore. When I do it this way the whole underside of the ribbon has glue, so even though it shows, you can't tell, because it's all the same color. Does that make sense?

Here's my original question:
That makes sense. I will have to give that a try too, not sure how happy my fingers will be, but I will try in the name of pretty clippies
