Default Flip Flop Bling

Hey ladies! I am trying to make some flip flops with bows attached and have gotten almost to the end. I am having trouble with the gems in the middle of the bows. I got a pack of clear jewels from Michaels and attached them to the bows with E6000 (hot glue doesn't hold nearly well enough for wear for me) but the gems got all murky and strange looking. Any suggestions? TIA!!

yes i had this happen to awhile back. try hot glue on the back and see if the same thing happens? i got mine from hh and complained that they kept getting all cracked looking when i used fabric glue and they told me to use the hot glue and they are fine now.

Yeah, you cant use e6000 on acrylic gems. Eats eats awat the silver backing. Use gem tac.
