Default Bow crisis!

Oh no! My glue isn't working! I have had a clip come off and a bottlecap fall off! What is wrong? Any suggestions ladies? I'm so embarrassed this happened to my customers

What type of glue are you using? I use E6000 and have never had any problems.

yep E6000 for the bottle cap... I also find that it helps to attach the clip to the bow with an extra wrap of ribbon from the middle of the bow around the clip. hth

definately E6000 for the cap!!! It rocks! As far as the hot glue, maybe try a different brand. I had some trouble earlier this year when I bought a different glue. It was a disaster!!! the clear, not cloudy looking, sticks work better (I use AdTech). hth

I was using hot glue on the caps. I will try that and see how it does. Thanks ladies. I was bummed!

also if your hot glue doesn't work well look to your ribbon to see if maybe it's made a little differently. Sometimes they come out with a slicker polyester.
And check your room temperature. I have to close the vents to keep my glue sticky long enough to set.

e6000 is messy but works all over the place.

I've heard there's a problem with the recent gluesticks at Walmart and bottlecaps falling off. Is that were you got yours?
