Default Lining 30mm Snaps

I got my hands on some 30mm and 40mm snaps. I thought I would use ribbons to line them. Hey presto! They are freaking ugly! They look better "naked". I can see bumps and knobs.

Can anyone teach/guide/tell/share the secret to a smooth lined snap clip? I seen some really nice ones on Etsy. My lined snaps would have qualify for sales in Yukky, if there is such a site! LOL.

try using hot glue only for the start of the lining and the end of the lining. for the top section i use either fabritac or e-6000. it comes out much smoother looking. pm me if you need more help.

Hot glue works well for me - just make sure you are using a high temp glue gun. I do mine in 4 steps (glue, press down ribbon, glue, press down ribbon, etc) to make sure I put the ribbon down when the glue is at its hottest - no bumps.
