I use E6000 to glue bows to flip flops since it glues them better than hot glue. I think you can use it for anything it has a strong hold.

But I am sure the talented ladies in this forum will give you more advice than me... I am sort of a newbie to bow making

I wouldn't want to use the E6000 for lining clips just because it's more expensive than hot glue and takes forever to set up. It works great for putting resins, bottlecaps, buttons, etc on the center of the bow. If you were to use it to put the bow on the clip you'd have to either sit and hold it or wrap something around it to hold it in place while it cures.

No matter what you do with E6000 make sure you use it in a well ventilated area. The smell will knock you for a loop.

I use fabrictac for a variety of things but not for lining clips - I did not have luck with the ribbon staying attached to the metal. It gives way over time. I use it for starting my woven headbands, attaching the padded appliques to lined clips.

I've used it when making certain kinds of cheer bows, when fabric is involved usually, or when attaching fabric-bonded-ribbon to another ribbon. Never ever use with white or other pale ribbon, as it will "leak" through and you will be able to see the glue...

Initially, its hard to work with, but once you get used to it, things go pretty smoothly!

Good luck!

I agree, the fumes are really strong. My husband complained when I used it. He said it made the house stink. Of course, at the time he said it, I didn't smell it. Guess I was used to inhaling the fumes.

Like Blkhawkfan says, it does tend to bleed through light colored grosgrain ribbons. However, it is hands down the best holding glue I've used when making cheer bows.

When using E6000 for cheer bows do you use dots or lines?
