Default What do you use?

I made some clips for my girls and I love them, however I used hot glue to hold the ribbon on and they are starting to pull off. Does anyone have any ideas on what else I can try to use? Thank you!

I had the same problem at first. I found that I have to let my hot glue gun get REALLY HOT before I use it. It works much better that way. I plug it in and let it heat up for at least 10 minutes before I start gluing.

Good luck!

I had the same problem until I realized my glue gun was a "low temp" gun. My new high temp gun works so much better!
