Default Which glue do you use to line clips?

I have always used hot glue...but I hate the way they look...the glue seems to show through & I end up with a hard spot...I have tried only a little dot of glue at each end, but then it obviously doesn't hold! Which glue do you all use?

Hot glue for sure. I am too impatient for anything else. I don't use very much though so it doesn't show.

I use hot glue. I use a small amount and use the end of the glue gun to spread it out.

I use hot glue, but then again, I usually have a bow on top of the clip so you cant see it lining.

I use hot glue. If it's going to be under a bow, it doesn't really matter if it shows through. If it's for a clip that will show I use more glue and then squeeze the ribbon so that the glue comes out the side. Then I use my finger and wipe the excess glue off. It used to burn my fingers, but they are used to it now. LOL Oh and I use a lighter on any glue that happens to show out the sides. It turns it clear so it doesn't show up white and messy.

i use hot glue as well, but sometimes I notice that on some of my clips the ribbon comes off on the end w/ the hot glue. Is there something wrong that I am doing for this to happen?

I know this is an older thread, but I am having glue gun issues. My cheapy says it's high temp but I notice that I can easily pull the ribbon off the clip (which is good if I mess up!). The new glue gun I bought holds really well, but too well, it gets lumpy and if the ribbon is not where I want it, I have a hard time getting it off. I don't know what too do!

I use Liquid Stitch that I found at JoAnn's in the fabric/notions section. It doesn't seep through and holds the ribbon on the clip. I don't use it to hold bows on though. It doesn't do that very well.

I use hot glue and don't have a problem. I've found that with my cheapie High temp gun, it works very well if I use High temp glue sticks. All temp glue sticks don't work too well for me.
