Default Cheer bow question/opinion please!!!

I have an order of cheer bows that is going to be three layers. It is 2.25" Black, 1.5" Royal, and 7/8" zebra. I have noticed some people do not heat bond the layers, or atleast that is how it appears. My last order I heat bonded since I was using the sequin fabric, but would save me tons of time if I didn't with these.

I am wondering if anyone has an experience with this and what your opinion is when it comes to heat n bond or not?

I have attached some photos for reference. The first one appears to have the layers bonded and the second does not.

When layering dark or printed ribbons, I use E6000 glue. The glue does not smell pleasant, but holds layers perfectly in place with no separation issues. When fusing lighter colored ribbons, I use heat n bond.

Just a thin strip down the center of the thick ribbon. Do same for next layer. If your bottom layer is white or similar, use heat n bond!
