I just use clear tape after I cut it. To pick up all the strays that will fall off. Then just use TONS of glue. Works for me

yeah i stick the tape right on it so pulls off all the loose ones lol. Oh and I make the marabou into a figure 8 and glue it together. I usually just glue a little piece of ribbon right in the middle to keep it on tight.

I wrap a piece of ribbon around it, glue it tight, then cut right in the middle. I usually use matching ribbon (unless I'm using it for something you won't see) I don't usually have a mess this way.

I'm still confused. I've read the posts, seen the pics (cute BTW ) but I'm still lost. When I bought my marabou, it came w/ a cord in the middle. Do you wrap the cord in a figure 8? If so, that seems like A LOT of marabou. LOL. If not, how would you use the tape or ribbon? I'm not getting the picture of gluing the marabou to the ribbon & then cutting it. It would show in the bow I'm wanting to use it for & what fell off wasn't enough to just stick on a bow w/ my french not in the center & still have it seen in the bow. Does any of this make sense? I love the look of marabou, but my first attempt has me feeling like I wasted my money b/c more of it ended up either on the floor, the glue gun or stuck to me than on my actual bow. HELP!!!! Much appreciated!
