For the FOE...try using the lighter method...you won't go back to anything else!! It holds well and is fast and easy to do. I did try my woodburner with it and it's not as easy and it does stink to high heaven!!

I went to Michaels, but ended up not buying it as I didn't have a coupon for it. I know it's not that expensive but 40% is a 40% isn't it!!!

I might try lighter method. I know many people use woodburner, but I didn't know lighter works as good as wb. Just melt the both ends together and hold it???

I remember coming across a thread on how to make FOE headbands a couple months ago and Lilredsmiles explained it perfectly(she always does)! Here is the easy, no-fail method!

Instead of using grosgrain for the loop, I just cut some FOE and use that as the loop...matches perfectly, of course! HTH

I just stitch my FOE.. better with a needle than a gun.. To dangerous and messy for me.

I like the Glue Gun from Michaels by Aleenes with the changeable nozzels. It is a 40 watt, I use a high temp glue stick by Surebonder from Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's. I love the small tip best, great for hard to reach places.

I also like the 60 watt Surebonder Glue gun, it is so hot you see a steam like effect from it. I use this when I have a large area or something I know will be hard to stick. This I purchased at Hobby Lobby, but also saw in JoAnn,s. I also only use the High temp glue stick in it.
