I just hold them together. Took me a while to get it but I finally did.

I thought there was someone on here who used that, but I couldn't remember who. Do you just dot every so often or do you put a solid line down the entire length of ribbon.

I put one solid line down the entire length of the ribbon, smear the glue with my finger(this thins it out so it doesn't soak through the top ribbon). After you attach your 2 ribbons together, you will need to wait just a couple minute(2-5 minutes) and let the ribbons adhere together before folding into your bow.
HINT...If you wait too long, the ribbon becomes hard and unmanageable. I really like this method because after the bow(glue) is dry, there is no need to spray it with stiffener....it saves me a step this way.

I may try the glue stick! Sounds like a very good idea. TY

The glue stick does the same thing. I never need to stiffen the bows once they are made either, I love it!

Thanks for sharing the glue stick trick! I've always just held my ribbons together, but it is a bit difficult. I'll have to try it that way.
