Default glue question?

I love using fabric tac for lining my clips but does it hold as well as hot glue?
It is so hard to line the tiny snap clips with hot glue I did a bunch using fabric tac and was amazed at how much easier it was but im worried it wont stay on

And how about using fabric tac to attached things to clips like the lady bug ?

If you line clips using fabric-tac, I recommend use glue gun to secure the ribbon ends--apply a thin line of hot melt glue as shown. Alligator clips too.

I use glue gun on back side of the clip, and use fabric-tag (or magna-tag) on the right side of the clip. I found this is the best way to line the clips. I'll update the 'how to line clips' instruciton.

I use glue gun to attach ladybug to the clips. It's instant, you don't need to press the bug for 30 seconds.

I prefer the hot glue to attach bows to the clip too. It just seems more secure and it is quicker.
