Default Wrapping Flip Flops!!!

Hey Ladies! I am having a hard time wrapping the bottom of my flip flops. Nothing looks right. How is the best way to attach the ribbon around the edge? I have tried E6000 and I guess it works but it takes so long to dry. Is this the best way? I know how talented you all are and will have some great advice for me. Thanks, Tamara

I think there is a tut on here somewhere where they show how to tuck the ribbon down into the sole with a crochet hook... Let me look around.

I tried the crochet hook and the flops I had there was no way I could get the ribbon poked down in that hole! I wrap mine just starting down close to the end. I haven't quite mastered how to finish when I get to the other end. Hopefully someone will share. I heard that you cut it at an angle and tuck it back up inside, but don't know exactly how it works. I use the E6000. I'm afraid to try anything else due to durability issues. Hot glue would make it so much faster! My flip flops look like they are from mars while they are drying! LOL. They have all these clips and clothespins clipped to the flops to make sure the ribbon sticks down while it dries.

Thank you for all your wonderful advice. I think I needed to make myself a little clearer. What I meant to say was wrapping the ribbon around the sole. I can't get it just right and I worry will it stay on. And by the way I can't wrap the straps either. It never ends just right, so I put just the bows, save lots of time and they are selling for $10. But I would like to add the ribbon around the sole. I do like the strap wrapped ones better, look more boutique. Thanks again, Tamara

I use E6000 I start it in the back and do glue around for a little while... but it tight and then keep going.. I do the glue around the whole sole instead of every inch or so...

Believe it or not, I used Sealah tape on my first pair of flip flops and it is holding up beautifully. The straps are still tight and flat and so is the sole ribbon. The only areas I need to work on is the beginning and end of wrapping the straps. But I got a little better by the very end of the second shoe. lol Here is a picture:

I use hot glue for mine. Just make sure you use grosgrain ribbon for it.
