Default How to attach two ribbons?

Hello - I'm having trouble making a bow (like a pinwheel or boutique bow) when layering a 7/8" ribbon on top of a 1 1/2" ribbon. I tried gluing the thinner ribbon on top of the wider ribbon with a hot glue gun before making the bow, but the glue seems to dry fast and forms a bump where the ribbons are glued together. Any suggestions?

I always used Beacon's (I think it was fabri-tac?); it was clear and in a clear bottle. Also- I drew a dotted line where I wanted the glue and did it a little at a time: 3-4 inches, smear the glue, put on the top layer ribbon, put a book or something hefty on it, wait a few minutes, do the next few inches. I'm sure there's an easier way; but as I only ever made for personal use, I just stuck with what worked.... even if it was overly time consuming.

You can also use aleene's tacky glue, just place a line of glue on wider ribbon and smear it with your finger and place smaller ribbon on top and wait alittle bit until it dries...

I use Fabri-Tac, but you can also use Stitch Witchery (an iron-on sticky tape) to keep them together. Either works well, but I prefer the Fabri-Tac since I can do it in one step, rather than using an iron.
