Default Re: Korkers on flip flops?

Now, I have to say, I did *not* wrap them. What I did was glue the 3/8" ribbon to the top of the sides. I didn't want to wrap them because, first of all, they have a back-strap (it's a toddler shoe). Secondly, I thought the wrapped ribbon might bother her.

So, it's back to the drawing board. But I'm not really sure how I can fix this
I'm sure you did, but did you use quite a bit of glue? I also go back several times and push the bow/korker down to make sure its touching the glue.
