Gorilla Glue (sp?) works the best for me.

I just started using Fabri-Tac. It seems to take a second to hold, but once it holds its on there.

Thanks!
I use a high temp glue gun and I havent had any problems with it staining ribbon...just a few burnt fingers! but I tested my bows trying to pull them off and its impossible I couldnt pull it apart! The gun was ten dollars at Michaels.

i think the only bad thing about fabri-tac is that it sometimes stains satin ribbon when used in excess. other than that, it's great! i use it, too.

I also use a high temperature glue gun, and have never had any problems. I am very cautious about the adhesives I use, and always look for the "certified non-toxic" emblem. It was for this reason that I do not use E600 either for bows or rhinestones. High temperature glue does not stain ribbon. Make sure you are also buying high temperature glue sticks, not multi-purpose. I have found these to have better holding strength as well!

Sorry I am just now getting back to this one That is the one thing that I don't use hot glue on anymore since I found out about terrifically tacky tape & saleah tape for clippies. I never remember the glue staining the ribbon tho....just remember it being very hot when I was smoothing the ribbon down on the clip
