Default Glue

My bows/embelishments kept falling off of my clips so I got a high temp. glue gun and it is still happening. What am I doing wrong?? I tried using E6000 but the smell gives me a headache, and I can not handle it even if I use it outside. Any suggestion?!

What kind of ribbon and embellishments?

I use hot glue and you gotta get the item on the RIGHT AWAY when the glue is at its hottest

some embellishment just have to have E-6000... nothing else adheres like it...

get a filtermask to wear from the hardwear store... and suck it up J/K

Use the hot glue at the highest temperature, when it is still fresh and hot. Also, make sure your glue sticks are high temperature glue sticks. I like Adhesive Tech, and have been using their glue sticks and glue guns for years. Also, make sure all edges of the embellishment are held in place, with firm pressure, for several seconds. Simply putting glue on the clip and sticking the embellishment on there will not make it secure. Give it a good squeeze! HTH!

I just discovered something about E6000. I came across several bows
I had made about 3 months ago that were glued to the ribbon lined clip with E6000. To see if they were still stuck on good I pulled on the ribbon lining the clip. Much to my surprise it came right off. The glue was brittle and was not stuck much at all.
This upsets me because I thought E6000 was like a forever glue.
That tells me that anything I made using E6000 months ago is probably falling apart!
And that does not make me happy. I know I used a new tube of glue because I had just started making bows and that is all I used.

I have never had to use e6000 for anything other than bottle caps that have the plastic in the middle

That is very disconcerting. Kind of like what I felt when I discovered Fabri-Tac didn't last either. I just started getting into the e6000 for my embellished flip flops. I don't want to worry that things will fall off after I sell them! I guess the best way to be certain something won't fall off is to sew it on. But even that is not feasible sometimes.

I did this too and mine fell apart also! I stopped using E6000 when my first tube ran out and only use the hot glue or Jewel-it for rhinestones.
