What kind of glue are you using? I try to stick with the E6000 or just a good ol' hot glue gun.

How are you attaching it? Are you using your center know ribbon & wrapping that all the way around? When I do mune, I put some glue on the bow & attach it to the clip & then I take my center ribbon & wrap it 1 side at a time around the clip & glue it & seal it & then I cover that with my ribbon to line the clip. I don't coven the inside of the top of the clip until I have my bow attached. I figure the more layers the sturdier it will be.

Is your glue high temp? I had that trouble when I accidentally used low or multi temp.

I only use high temp. Though some of my glue sticks are multi temp. and I haven't noticed too much of a problem. I put line the clip, glue the bow on the center and along where the bow hits the clip, then put my middle on the same way the previous poster does. I always give mine a little tug the next day to make sure they are holding up.
