I too have found that the glue sticks from WM hold up way better than any of the ones from HL or Michaels, even the most expensive ones. I always do mine in sections that way I can squish the glue where its no lumpy. For instance, I start with just a dab of glue on the end of my ribbon and center it onto the inside of the clip, then I lift the ribbon up while I spread glue on only the metal of that side of the clip and lay the clip down on my ribbon. SOmetimes I even smash with my fingers so that the glue lays down and then when you bring the ribbon around to the other side and put glue any lumps will melt with the new hot glue. Hope that makes sense. Lol. I also use the small tip hot glue gun and I want to say it is less than $6 at HL and has a little stand and everything. I love mine.

I have tied hot glue and I can't seem to get the lumps out. I have been using Fabric Fushion and have been very happy with the results while using on grosgrain.

Try using the side of your nozzle to smooth the lumps

Every cilp I could pull apart easily!

Finally, I bought some glue at walmart. I think it starts with an "a". Sorry I'm not close to my stash, or i'd go look. It's a clear bag with burgundy on it....
This glue rocks. I also bought the glue gun from walmart with a small nozzle.
This duo has now made my clips super strong & I cannot pull anything I glue apart. If I do, it usually ends up ripping the fabric or making a huge blemish in whatever it was.

I hope that helps. It took me forever to figure this out! I almost stopped selling stuff b/c i thought everything was going to fall apart.


O my gosh me too!!! The walmart glue is fabulous!!! I have glue form craft stores that are horrible!!!! I ONLY use that glue now! i never have a problem now!

Honestly, I've had such issues with this, I almost gave up making bows!!!

I started out with old glue sticks I had lying around from random crafting, and a low temp glue gun. My clips started pulling away a few weeks after making them - yikes!! I even sold some bows that way and figure I may have lost some repeat business from that.

Then I switched to a Surebonder high temp glue gun, and Surebonder (is that the name? Something like that at least...) glue sticks. Those were okay, but when I was ready to make large quantities of clippies I switched to the tape. I started out with Jodees Sealah tape and LOVED it, but it was pretty expensive. So I switched to Specialty tape and didn't love it *as much* but it was still so simple and fun (really!) to line clips with it.

However, I just now (a few weeks later) noticed that some of my bigger bows that have tape lined clips, the ribbon is pulling away from the clip. When I smoosh it back on, it sticks well again, but this is definitely not okay.

So, my verdict: I'm going to buy Aileens glue sticks when I run out of these, I'm going to continue to use Specialty tape to line clippies (because it's smooth, easy to use, and I've not had issues with them) but for clips that bows will go on, I'll use a tape/hot glue combo to make SURE they're stuck good.
