When to use hot glue or Fabri-tac?
 
I'm a newbie here. I've tried making a couple clips for my daughter. When should I use hot glue and when should I use Fabri-tac? I know hot glue is strong but I have a hard time not making a mess. I don't want to see any glue on my finished product.

Any helpful hints would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks, Krissy

I prefer hot glue. I use the fabric tac on things that I need just a bit more time to get to- or things that need longer to set. Other than that- it's all hot glue. The more I use the glue gun- the better I am at it. I have figured out I really don't need to press the button- it seems to ooze at the same speed I work! LOL ;)

Sarah,

I haven't yet done any snap clips. Why does Fabri-tac work better than hot glue on the snap clips? I have heard some people use both?

When doing the 50 mm snaps, I follow the directiong on the ribbon retreat and wrap the sanp clip with 1/4 ribbon and then make and attach a bow. I use the fabric-tac for the wrapping part and hot glue to attach the bow to the snap clip. HTH

Thanks, yes that helps.

I use hot glue for most everything I can. It just a preference thing. You just have to try both and see what you like.
