Default Keep sequins from falling off

I have 3/8 ribbon I bought at Michaels that has a row of small sequins down the middle. My question is how do I keep them falling off when using them for hairbows? I spray my bows with startch but I still seem to have a few fall off. I am using this ribbon for cheer bows so I don't want them to fall off. Thanks for any help!

are they falling off of the ends where the string is cut? I would suggest a VERY small dot of hot glue just to hold in place....hth

I use a tiny bit of a clear drying glue (gem-tac) on the ends. It dries hard and you can't see it. That seems to work.

No they fell off on the front of the bow. Just 1-2 but you can see where they should have been. I didnt have any problems with the cut.

Do you think I could just run this down the middle of the bow? And where do you get it at?

Thanks!!!

I am not sure how that would look down the center. Gem tac is sold in craft stores. It's a green bottle with yellow writing and is made by Beacon. I bought my ribbon on ebay.
