Default Problem with my clips or glue?

Hello im new here, I come from Edinburgh, Scotland, after searching for help on alligator clips I came accross this wonderful site!

I seem to have a problem with making my alligator clips, sometimes with light coloured ribbon once the fabric glue is dried it appears rusty and comes through the ribbon, ive tried two different fabric glues and both do the same, what am I using thats wrong? Im using two pring alligator clips and grosgrain ribbon, should I be using a glue gun?? Which ive noticed from here thats what alot of you use. Hope someone can help, thanks.

I think a glue gun would work better then fabric glue. You can also use double sided tape for scrapbooking but I'll have to let someone else tell you the actual name of it.. Good luck!

I personally use a glue gun. Some people also use Sealah (sp?) tape, I have never used it but have heard good things about it. I'm hoping to get some soon to try!

I use the double-sided tape and I've gotten perfect results from it. It makes lining clips so much faster and you get a really clean, flat look. I don't use the Sealah tape, but I use a tape that was recently in a tape buy on here. This tape didn't have a name, but it's made by a company called Specialty Tapes. It's adhesion is supposed to be even stronger than the Sealah. I've never used Sealah, so I can't compare them.

a hot glue gun is best but make sure you invest in the high temp gun. i started out with a cheapy one at first and discoverd that it wouldnt hold the ribbon very well to the clip. hth
good luck!!
