Is this the cracked ice that spandex house carries for $35 /yd. How do you adhere it to the ribbon? glue or heat n bond/wonderunder? I thinking of ordering some to try... seems liek it would be cheeper than ordering the glitter vinly to cover a bow?

The cracked ice from spandex house is a very thick/stiff material - it doesnt need a backing - just cut to 3" and fold.

Need - no it does not "need" a backing, however, if you want a professional looking finish, you should use a ribbon backing. There are a few 2-3 colors that is on actual white spandex that you may be able to get away with no backing, however the majority of other colors has a grey/black cotton type packing (like canvas) and it is ugly, I would definitely recommend using a ribbon backing. I also found that if you only use one color.....I personally like the black, you can use different color ribbon backing and it looks great!
good luck!

I agree I would never sell a bow with no ribbon backing.

How do you adhere the cracked ice to the ribbon? Glue or heat n bond/wonder under? I am considering ordering some any help would be great. I love the gltter vinyl as I just have to press it no glue/fusing but would like to be able to layer...

I use wonder-under. No matter what the fabric I am using, I always use a ribbon backing.....The bows are very stiff and you have to fold them warm, but the end result is fantastic. Some squads love the stiffness of the bow and some are just not used to bow being so stiff. But because they look so sparkly especially under the light and is still cheaper than fully covered rhinestones, I find that a lot of teams opt for them.
Hope this information is helpful. Good luck!

Hi, it is a little stiffer than using the glitter vinyl. however, I believe the cost per bow is a bit more reasonable with the glitter fabric vs the glitter vinyl

This is the easiest way to avoid further heat causing your vinyl project not as good to expect. Give it to try with the proper glue. Using a soft bristled brush to the surface of your vinyl. While the glue is wet, sprinkle generously with glitter to cover the adhesive. Let the piece dry and gently dust off any remaining loose glitter with the brush.
