I use a glue gun, but I've heard some others use fabri tac. I've tried, but I don't have the patience for that.

I use fabri tac. It takes a bit longer to dry (which sometimes works to my advantage), but I don't burn my fingers off, and I think it's less messy. Just get a bunch of alligator clips and use them to hold the ribbon while it dries (if you're making a ribbon sculpture).

I find the fabri tac to stringy and takes too long. I went back to hot glue gun.

High temp glue gun. I'm too impatient to wait for Fabri-Tac to dry.

I use hot glue on the parts where the ribbon doesn't touch ribbon. Basically on the pinch area I use the hot glue, then I use the fabri tac around the clip 'mouth'. This has worked the best for me! HTH
