When I first started I used Fabri-tac and after a few months, I realized that the ribbon was lifting off of every clip I had in stock. I was mortified to think that was happening on the items I sold! I immediately researched other options and that was when I found out about the tape. I do use a few dots of hot glue in the pinch area and the back for extra reinforcement.

I bought some clips and flowers wholesale from someone who used fabric tac. I had to redo all of the clips before I could sell them because the ribbon was peeling off. I now use the specialty tape that can be found on here in the for sale section and sometimes group buys.

Same experience with the fabric-tac, only works for a while. I also had a batch of glue sticks that happened as well. Turned out not all hot glue is created equal. You have to make sure the package list includes bonding with metal. I still use hot glue for majority of my clips. The ones with the tapes I use for the simple lined clips but I still put hot glue on the pinch and the end to keep it from pulling up.

I haven't every used it to line my clippies. I have always done hot glue or E-6000.

Just starting out, but I can say that the few clippies I've made, the ribbon has lifted easily in a matter of days with the use my girls give it. I was really happy that I found something that didn't burn my fingers off. lol Oh well.
