Default Wondering what is the best glue to use with velvet ribbon?

Hi there,

I usually make all my hair clips with grosgrain ribbon. I recently purchase some gorgeous velvet ribbon.

Just wondering what is the best glue to use when lining snap clips and alligator clips with velvet ribbon? I have tried it with my hot glue gun, but I wasn't happy with the result. The clips look pretty and everything, but the ribbon is very easy to pull off the metal clips (as I found out when my daughter decided to test it out). I don't have this problem with at all when I line my clips with grosgrain ribbon.

Kind Regards
Kelly

When glue gun fails, resort to E6000. Mine stayed put with Velvet.

Thank you cynthia for your fast reply.

I will do a web search and try and find someone that stock that glue in Australia

Is it easy to use that glue? Any tricks I might need to know before I start? I have only ever used hot glue.

Some ppl don't like it because of the fumes (hv to admit, it does smell but I guess I'm *immune* to it already..lol)... Someone mentioned about Magna Tac as well but I've never use it yet, personally.

Soon after I posted my first, I did noticed you're in Australia..lol...Sorry about that.

Tips on the E6000, well, it used to be *ditch-the-nozzle* but Sabine just posted there's a way to keep the nozzle unclogged. But, you could still use the *ditch-the-nozzle* method, squeeze it unto a paper plate (no plastic, please...lol), and use a toothpick or wooden popsicle stick to apply. Better and absolutely good to *control* when applying it. =)

Sounds good, Kelly...

Happy Bowmaking and hope you'll be able to find/get the E6000 glue.
