Default Re: How to attach two ribbons?

Any suggestions?
I always used Beacon's (I think it was fabri-tac?); it was clear and in a clear bottle. Also- I drew a dotted line where I wanted the glue and did it a little at a time: 3-4 inches, smear the glue, put on the top layer ribbon, put a book or something hefty on it, wait a few minutes, do the next few inches. I'm sure there's an easier way; but as I only ever made for personal use, I just stuck with what worked.... even if it was overly time consuming.
