Smile I'm pretty new but need help!

I am new to this site and find it amazing! I just wondered what people use to adhere their ribbon to the crocodile clips? I have been using glue lines for over a year but I 'm sure there must be a better option? Angela

I prefer glue gun:

E-6000 is the best for "permanent bond" but it take long time to dry.

Welcome to the forum. By the way, I'll move this thread to "How to Make" sub-forum.

Thanks

Michelle

I use a glue gun, but I hear some people use a special double sided tape Welcome to the wonderful world of bow making!

Hi and welcome! I also prefer hot glue. I have never tried double sided tape, but some people love it.

I have never used anything but a glue gun but find it fast and dependable.

I use a glue gun but learned the hard way to make sure you not only use a high temp. gun but use also high temp. glue sticks! Not the all purpose ones! I'm new also welcome!!!
