Default Flip flops with DRR ribbon and grosgrain?

I'm wondering what the best method is for making flip flops with the double layer of ribbon? The type where you layer the grosgrain on top of the DRR and just glue to the top of the strap. I know to use E6000 to attach it to the strap, but do you E6000 the two layers of ribbon together first and let it dry? Then glue the layered ribbon strip to the flip flop strap? I've only ever made them where I wrapped the strap.

I usually use E6000 to attach the DRR to the flip flop, then I hold it in place with clothespins, I let it sit a few hours then I attach the 3/8 grosgrain on top with E6000 and again clip it in place and let dry for a few hours. I have sold lots of flips flops and there have never been any problems!

This is exactly how I do it. My main business is flip flops and I've never had a problem.

I am too paranoid to just glue.
I glue the DRR on, then sew the ribbon to the actual flip flop.
Then I glue the grosgrain on over where I sewed the drr onto the flip flop!

I don't have any pics , but I cut all my ribbon, glue pieces together(E6000) then glue to strap. I use clips to hold it in place until it dries. My girls are wearing some from last year that are still holding up.
