I would love to help, but I don't have my supplies with me (I'm sort of on vacation). If no one has answered by tonight when I get home, I will get a few pics up of how I do my headbands. They are my favorite thing to do.

The tape would work, and most fabric glues will, too.

I use fabritac and start by wrapping a small tab across each end then start to wrap diagonally overlaying a bit so that none of the band shows through. Gue only on the underside to be sure no glue seeps through the satin. I have never had a problem with fabritac. Make sure to heat seal your ends for a clean finished look.

ok, to start I use Sealah double sided tape around the inside of the headband. i also use a little to hold it on the outside where needed. Then I continue to wrap the ribbon around and when I get to the end I again use sealah where I need to hold the ribbon while I adjust and then when I have it where i want it, I heat seal the end and use e6000 on the open ends. I use a safety pin to get the glue in where I need it. I then squeeze out the excess glue and clamp both ends with alligator clips. I have tried to take pics of the steps but I realize it might not translate how i am thinking it will. Please pm me with any questions. I will be happy to help.
