Default ???? about spikes!

i'm making some stacked bows and this time i wanted to try layering the ribbon on the spikes. like putting a piece of 3/8 on top of 7/8. TNT recomends using like a glue but the glue i use u can see through the 3/8 ribbon. does that make any sense? i'm just wondering if the heat and bond stuff will hold up as well as the glue? i dont want it coming apart in a couple months.

If you seal your v-cut with a lighter you can seal them together at the v-cut. Let the ribbon slightly melted then press them together. this will require a bit of practice until you've got the feeling how much the end should be melted before being pressed.

You can do the same thing with the wood burning tool by sealing them together
