I know, I am kind of a freak about stuff like that, I don't want to use or have around my kids. So I have passed on making bow flip flops.

Yikes! Isn't there some industrial hot glue or something? I think I remember someone at a craft show saying there is some industrial hot glue that is better than HL or walmart hot glue...anyone know anything about this?

I was scared to use glue or E6000 for this same reason, so I opted to tie the bows on with stretchy beading cord! (they sell it at HL and other craft stores) it's invisible and if you tie it with one piece on either side of the center knot, it's great. Hope that helps (Just be sure to strech it really far while you're tying it so it's tight

I dont know what kind of flip flops you use, but I tie mine on--I usually get mine from Old Navy (when they have really good sales--I dont sell these, but give them as gifts and such) but, anyways, I make my bow then tie the bow with heavy duty string around the thing of the fliplfop. I will sometimes put a felt backer over the underside of where I tied it so it doesnt rub against the toe......Sorry, hope that made sense, but try that maybe? HTH!!

I used E6000 but haven't noticed the smell, . What I don't like about it is that it takes longer to dry and I have to hold/press the item for a while.

NO NO!!! No E600!!! I use it yes, BUT use flip flop glue!!! Yes, flip flop glue. It is MADE FOR FLIP FLOPS! You will find it at Michaels and Hobby Lobby. I used it last year for my flower and bow flip flops. Use generously on the top of the flip and then I put a double prong alligator clip on the bow or flower to clamp it down to the flip. Leave for 24 hours and done!!! It works...PROMISE!

I generally do it by an open window or close to the vent hood and there's very few fumes.

flip flop glue is useless.
I used it on flip flops for me and my godbabies. and one rip her bows off the day she got them. and mine came aloose also, I reglued using hot glue and flip flop glue combined but they still eventually came off. I haven't tried the e6ooo yet, got some but just haven't used it. will be soon though so I'll know what to use for flip flops when it's gets warm so i can sell them.
