The glue was a disappointment I had glued ribbon on the straps but it didn't stay very well.

Good info, Maxine. I've never made them interchangeable before. I usually just glue the korkers right on. I know you have a previous thread about having trouble with them staying on. Knock on wood, I haven't had that problem, but I like the fact of being able to change them. Especially for my nieces, they can change them instead of me giving them one of every pair I make!!

You're very welcome! I'm happy you didn't suffer any glue issues (I really do believe it was just a batch of bad shoes ). It's really nice to be able to exchange the bows for different ones

Maxine, your flops are awesome!

What glue is everyone using so that you don't have to ribbon wrap them? e6000? I know hot glue doesn't stick to the straps, at least not for me, I have to ribbon wrap and HATE doing that!
