How did the double face tape work out? I still haven't tried it.

I've used the double faced tape on my simple double layered grosgrain cheer bows. It holds very well & is easy to use. It is not stiff at all, which for my customers is a slight drawback. They tend to like the stiffer bows so I am still mainly using heat n bond. My own daughter hates wearing bows so she prefers the taped ones as they are not as stiff and "in your face-Minnie Mouseish" as she calls them. It is also a bit faster imo as you don't have to pre measure and cut the tape like you do the heat n bond. you just stick it on and cut when you get to the end of the ribbon length.

I've thought about trying the xyron, but was wondering, if the 2 ribbons are different sizes, do you end up getting adhesive outside of the smaller ribbon. Can you use different sizes?

Im curious about using the Xyron as well. I have one around the house somewhere...but I have a stack of Joann's coupons I could use on Heat N Bond (since they don't sell it in stores ) gahhh I just don't know!

IMHO I have found that what works best for me is the Heat n Bond Lite in purple package. The Red package Heat n Bond has seeped through spandex and ruined the sheen of fabrics.

If you want a long lasting bow, I would use heat n bond. The xyron, which I use for scrapbooking wouldn't create a long lasting bow.

Oh and one more thing, my joann's sometimes have bolts of the Heat n bond light. But not all the time
