I put the tape on the ribbon as normal, then when I position the ribbon on the underside of the top prong, I do a quick squiggle of glue and when I press it against the bottom, it squishes through the hole in the middle of the prong (I use single). Then I quickly press down the ribbon on top so it gets hot glue on it while it is still hot. I smooth it down and there are no lumps. It makes me feel better knowing that there is some (not a lot) hot glue reinforcing the ribbon on the top prong of the clip. I hope this made sense! I will try to get pics of this process if any one wants.
That makes perfect sense. So does the tape help to prevent hot glue lumps?
