I third that option! It's quick, doesn't hurt at all (the hot part is under the ribbon and it's pretty cool by the time you squish it out the sides), and squishing it makes it flat.
I also like how it usually seals the edges of the ribbon together. Keep practicing! Only time will get you used to your glue gun and exactly how much time and pressure it takes to perfectly dispense glue for lining a clip. You'll get used to it in time.
