Default Double Sided Tape Questions

I've been a bit skittish about using double sided tape. Some of you gals love it, and some of you say that it comes apart too easily. I really want to be able to just line a simple clippy with some of the cute 3/8 grosgrain that I have without the lumps.

So my questions are:
Would double sided tape work better if I used hot glue at the start and finish of the ends of the ribbon? If I put a bit of hot glue on the ribbon, lined the underside, used tape on the top side only, hot glue inside & on the underside of the pinch part, would it still be smooth?

Thank you in advance for sharing your experience & wisdom here

I just bought some for the first time just a couple of months ago. It does line the clip so nicely, But I feel like you still need the hot glue on the end and beginning. I'm just not sure about it holding. it does look nice though!

If I understand your question correctly, you'd like to use tape on the clip part and then use glue on the pincher and the back, right? (Sorry long day already!) If so, then yes, it'll still look really great because you'll have no lumps or bumps on the top. HTH!

Sweet. Thanks guys. So if the clip comes apart with the ends of the ribbon hot glued, someone would really have to try to pry the ribbon off the top of the clip to get it off, right? I'm ordering some today to try out.

So do you guys ever wear ribbon lined alli clips? I'm so tempted to make some of these for me. I love some of the american crafts ribbon

I love it - and actually haven't used glue. It took me a couple of trials before I could line it well. Good luck with your trials I think you will love it too!

I use specialty brand tape. Not sure if I like it as much as sealah which I started out using. I recently have found some of my older lined clips coming apart in the center - much to my horror! I can't tell which tape they were lined with though. Anyhow, I used to only use the hot glue in the pinch and the end. Now what I do is reinforce the middle section with it as well. I put the tape on the ribbon as normal, then when I position the ribbon on the underside of the top prong, I do a quick squiggle of glue and when I press it against the bottom, it squishes through the hole in the middle of the prong (I use single). Then I quickly press down the ribbon on top so it gets hot glue on it while it is still hot. I smooth it down and there are no lumps. It makes me feel better knowing that there is some (not a lot) hot glue reinforcing the ribbon on the top prong of the clip. I hope this made sense! I will try to get pics of this process if any one wants.

That makes perfect sense. So does the tape help to prevent hot glue lumps?

I think it helps to use both tape and hot glue because you wont have to use too much of the hot glue which causes lumps, I think.
