I had heard of using the double sided tape but I have never tried it myself. What kind of glitter do you use for ribbon? I might try it some day. TIA

I've used the little fabric paints in the small bottles and filled in areas with the glitter paint...made them POP! These work GREAT...and if you wanted to put it all over the thing I suppose you could just spread it on thinly over the entire ribbon.
