Default Help! baby wipes travel case

Hello out there. I started making the covered travel size baby wipe cases and my first 2 turned out really cute. The past few I have made won't stay closed. I used the Huggies ones for all of them. I thought maybe the hot glue gun warped the plastic but I used E600 on the last one and it did the same thing! What am I doing wrong? I am seeing a bunch of old friends tomorrow that are now hoity-toity and I was going to give them some.

I covered the sides and then put the trim over that but there is nothing hanging down to obstruct where the 2 lids meet. I used regular grossgrain ribbon for the trim. I know lots of people use braided stuff. Maybe other people's do this too but you just can't tell???

some people definitely use ribbon - the braided stuff is called gimp. they have it at walmart.

did the case close before you embellished? so weird, if there is not fabric or glue in the way of it closing!! run your finger over it, maybe there is some e-6000?

I haven't made one of these yet but I know I've had a case or two that I've bought to use and sometimes they just don't close right.

Maybe you pull the fabric to tight? this happened to me before, I had to take it apart and glue it back again.
