You're going to need different glues for different things. I use fabritac for my clippies/bows. For rhinestones and things that need the extra hold I use E600.

thank you so much for your help...do you use the fabritac to apply the ribbons on to the headband(i.e. lycra or ribbon headbands) do they hold well?

I like fabric fusion for gluing my rhinestones to ribbon. I do prefer working with fabritac though because it holds it where I want it more quickly.

The Aleene's Jewelry glue that comes in a white bottle similiar to the fabric tac bottle is great! I embellish all of my purses with it and have never had a problem. You just have to be patient and let it dry.

I've been using gemtac for all my rhinestones and love it. When it dries it is very strong.
