Default Ugh, my bows keep falling off!

I've tried hot glue and E600 to glue bows on my flip flops, in both instances the bows have fallen off! I have ten orders for flip flops and I need to find something that works ASAP, I'm thinking of turning to super glue. I've read over and over that E600 is the way to go, but it's just not working for me, I let it cure for 24 hours too. What am I doing wrong?

For my flip flops, I went to Michaels and bought a $7 leather punch. It has a dial where you can choose the circle size. At the top of the thong, I punch out two small holes. Then I make bows and attach them to bar pins. After the flip flop has been embellished on the straps, etc. I just pin on the bow. you can't see it from the top or side, and it can be taken off to spot clean.

Where do you get these bar pins, and do you think having them exposed on the underside irritates the skin?

Personally I put my bows on alligator clips and clip them through the ribbon. I have only made one pair though and so far it has worked.

Bar pins are like the pins you would find on a brooch. You can get them in the findings section/jewelry section of any craft store. Unless you have an ungodly fat foot, the pin won't even touch.

hurray for corey! people still willing to share. I love it. Thanks. I use hot glue. I just make a bow like I usually would and when I wrap the center knot around the bow, I wrap it around the center of the flip flop and glue it to itself. I haven't had a problem with them falling off! Good luck. you could also use the hole punch idea, then use the croc doodads to slide through the hole. I haven't tried it, but I don't know why it wouldn't work.
