Default Re: Attatching marabou to clip

I hot glue. At first I used just the tape but then one day during a photoshoot for my bow I was with a potential client and the puff came right off. How embarrassing! From then on, it's hot glue all the way for me...

Hmm, thanks....I am going to try removing the tape and see how that works. I just made 2 tonight for an order, I hope they stay on ok. I did try to get some of the glue on the actuall puff to help it stay on.

This will be great for you Amy. A lot less work!

I bought some of the ostrich puffs from you with the tape and LOVE the tape. I personally think it stays on the clip better. I have not had any problems with them falling off.

I remove the tape then I cut a piece of felt the same size as the piece of paper I removed off and hot glue it on top of the tape then I hot glue the clip onto the felt.
