Default E6000 and bobby pins

What the heck am I doing wrong?!?!?! I can not, for the life of me, get my sassy paci buttons to stay attached to the pads of the bobby pins. Is there a special trick to this? I have cleaned both, applied the glue and attached, the next day I yanked on the button and it came right off. I scored the pad and the back of the button and glued and had the same issue the next day. Am I not letting it sit long enough? Should I be using a ton of glue? This glue makes me sick to my stomach to use so I'd really like to be able to not kill myself or throw up using it. Thanks in advance for any help.

When I use E600 to attach items, I've found that I have to use pressure for the 24 hours while it cures. For bobby pins, I attach the button and use clothespins to apply the pressure until its cured.

Also~if the bobby pin has a felt pad attached, I remove that. The button will adhere to the felt pad, but the felt pad will pull away from the bobby pin. HTH

I made some button bobby pins the other day and I used epoxy. I squirted a little on the back of the button, put the bobby pin on and set it on the counter to dry. Well, I waited ALL DAY for that stuff to dry! I had to keep putting the bobby pin back on because it kept sliding off, lol. I couldn't figure out what the problem was and why that stuff wouldn't dry. I was going to wear them on Sunday and was bummed out that they weren't getting dry. So I finally asked dh how long the epoxy usually takes to dry and he says about 5 minutes! I then asked him why it hadn't dried on my button and he says, well did you mix it up? What?! I got out a new set of pins and buttons, mixed up the epoxy and within 5 minutes my new hair pretties were ready to go I would definitely recommend epoxy, it's super strong and I didn't worry the buttons would fall off.

I've had the same problem with the E6000 and bobby pins! Hot glue didn't work for me either. Sounds as though I'll be trying the Epoxy next...thanks for the tip!

Aaaack! I'm so happy I read this thread because I was going to work on these tomorrow. I dug on the bobby pins this evening and was cutting the shanks off the buttons. Now I will have to rethink how to attach them . . . and raid hubby's garage to see if he has epoxy.

Thanks for the info, ladies!

Thanks ladies!!!! I'll try the pressure first and if that doesn't work, I guess I'm off to get some epoxy.

Also, try some high temperature hot glue sticks....the good ones work really good. So good that i broke the weld trying to get the button off

I also use high temp hot glue. I hate E6000. It never works for anything I try to use it for and it just leaks out of the tube and makes a big mess.

Hmmmm....it never even occurred to me to use my glue gun as I thought for sure there was no way it would be strong enough. Now...what kind of glue gun do I have, lol.

Well alot of it has to do with the glue. Check to see what kind of gun you have an glue sticks. I bought mine overseas, but i've seen better deals on them here in the US, lol...so i probably didn't get a great deal...but they do work awesome!
