Default Wipes case... questions

Hello there!
I`ve looked at a couple posts on wipes cases and you mostly seem to be buying the case themselves at targets.. We don`t have Targets here in canada, where else do you fond them? Could this be done with plastic containers from the dollar store used for pens?
I was also wondering about the glue... in the instructions video I watched they use a hot glue gun... does the glue actually hold pretty well on the plastic? Does it not comme appart when you pull on the fabric?
Can`t wait to get my rosette ribbon and try these!!!!
Last, how much do these run for? (with or without wipes themselves)
MERCI!

What about the dollar stores? they don't carry wipe cases?
other than only if you order them online but it might be more expensive you know?

I don't know how the hot glue holds I have only made fabric wipe cases but always use tacky glue ( the brown bottle)
I would like to know also how the hot glue holds I have my rossete ribbon sitting here

I use hot glue it bonds just fine. I have seen the rosette cases go from $14.99 to $25. I plan on selling mine for $16-18 depending on embellishments used.

1) I would stick to wipes cases. You can find them at Walgreens, CVS, Walmart...not sure if you have any of those in Canada. You can also find them on eBay.
A) I would not use a pencil case because they are so much bigger. You'd use more ribbon and it's pretty pricey as is.

2) Hot glue works just fine for me. Just make sure you're using high temp glue sticks.

3) Pricing: and I say again...PLEASE price them robustly. Ldelzer did a breakdown on costs and it's generally over $10 JUST for supplies! Let alone your time. If we all keep the prices fair, we won't shortchange the market for these. I sell mine for $25-30 depending on embellishment.

Let me know when you get your ribbon!

I am waiting for my rosette ribbon (patiently ) and I just wondered if someone can tell me how they start on the wipe case. Like, do you glue the edges first so that it fits right? How do you do the corners?

Sorry for the questions...I just don't want to mess up the ribbon as this is my first time using it and I am SO excited to get it!!!

TIA
