So.. I would say just enough to hold the shape but still be pliable
ROFLMAO! One of my ribbons was already kinda stiff off the roll, and by the time I got through with it, it could have caused an awful nasty open wound to a kid's ear!

I did the hairspray thing in the beginning, but then I stopped when I read a post from someone being concerned about her customer's potential allergies - which I hadn't thought of.

Now I do the sta-flo thing, which is working okay, but the hairspray dried faster and I'm very impatient when it comes to waiting games.
