It's not the korkers I'm having trouble with (but thanks for your suggestion ) I'm having trouble attaching ribbon to the top of the straps.

I normally use E6000 and then use clips to hold it down for a day.. seems to work well for me.. I don't like to wrap the ribbon around the straps bc it's a pia, I like to use 7/8 ddr.. like these.

On the rag flops do you just double knot?? I want mine to be fuller, so I guess I'd just use tons of fabric strips.. I'll try that!

Yep, I tried E6000.. didn't hold (even with clips and 30+ hours of curing time).

Do you have a bigger pic to see? They look great though!

LoL! You make me laugh pr Your waterproof korkers are cute! What can you do with them though? Are they just for shoes or something like that?

fewf . . . just finished posting 3 pics - do i get a gold star?

i use them like regular korkers . . . and sometimes i also make a skinny ribbon bow and attach both to the centers of bows (kinda like the funky bows but my base is gathered ribbon that i zig zag back & forth. they are just the same as korkers/used the same way. i like to try different stuff other than just ribbon.

oh crap, you're probably gonna want another pic of what it looks like!

Did you put the E6000 on the ribbon and the strap? Usually I have to put it on both and then let it sit for about 5 minutes before putting the ribbon on the strap (I also use a clothespin to hold it until the next day).
Try that and see if it works for you.

Yep, I sure did. I spread it out on the back of the ribbon and then put an additional bead of glue on top of the strap itself. I used clothespins to hold it down for over 30+ hours.

I have a few other ideas I'm going to try but I'm really beginning to think it's the shoe itself (the oozing factor pr talked about).

Bless your heart! Please, please share when you come up with a solution. I don't want to run into that problem if I do the toddler flip flops! LOL
