Default Re: Newbie How To Questions

Answers to your ??'s:
1. Lots of practice...lots of practice. You just have do keep doing it and eventually you'll feel how to do it the right way for you.
2. Use good quality ribbon. I have never had a problem with glue showing thru my ribbon. I use ribbon from United Beads and Schiff/Offray.
3. Kinda both. When I cover a clip, I insert my ribbon into the clip and let it close/grip the ribbon. I then apply my glue to the end of the clip to the pinch part, and then quickly press the ribbon over it. It's hard to explain in words...

Hope that helps at least a little bit!

And WELCOME to the group!

Another crafty stay at home
