Default Heat N Bond Question

I was fusing some ribbon together using heat n bond, but then afterwards it started peeling off. It said to just run the iron over for 2 seconds or so, but I did longer, thinking it would fuse better. However, after it started peeling away, I'm thinking I ironed too long. Does that happen?

I've had that happen... I think you can overheat it to the point of disaster. Just make sure you wait until it is fully cooled to see if it peels away because I think it all peels before its fully cooled.

I overheated it one time. I didn't realize I had the iron up too high and I couldn't get the stuff to stick. I finally realized I burned the heck out of the stuff and started over. Once I turned the iron down it worked great.

Its kinda hard to work with! You don't heat it enough, it won't stick, you heat it too much and it peels right off! Ugh!

I don't know....I'd like to know, though! I thought about starting a thread about it, but I know people get tired of me asking questions all the time!

I've heard some people just hold the ribbon or use E6000, but I wonder if sealah would work...does it hold that well or is it just kinda like tape for hot glue? There is also "Fabric Duct Tape" that I saw at HL that I wonder if it would work....it says it's permanent and waterproof.

But would these things keep them stiff....I know some people don't LIKE stiff, but some do, plus it helps keep the shape while their cheering.

UGH! I don't know......

I was wondering if anyone has tried the Liquid Stitch with the cheer bows. I don't really make a lot of cheer bows, but some tails down. I LOVE liquid stitch for other things and it would be SUPER stiff-maybe too stiff. Sorry for rambling-just wondered about this myself as I don't like heat-n-bond either!

Hmm....I have a little liquid stitch in my pile here somewhere....I might give that a try....you might be able to use it on the tails part, at least. you know....after the bow is made. Give it some extra reinforcement and help them keep their shape through lots of jumping.
