What about glue? like Fabric-Tac and the E6000? Can u get it in S'pore?

hmm.... If i am using a HOT glue gun...
Do i have to wait for 24 hours before using the ribbon lined snap clips?!?
I wonder if this is what i have been doing wrongly??

COz after lining the snap clip with ribbons,
I will do the bow the knot...
then glue the bow on the clip...
and put it on my daughter's hair....

TOO ANXIOUS!!

Yep, I have been known to 'glue-n-go' before . You should not have to wait. I have noticed that the room temperature and humidity effects the glues adhesion a bit but for me not to the point where it does not stick.

Well I was trying to get away without using glue gun today. I had bought some new Aleene's flexible stretchable fabric glue. Ribbon would not stick. ;o(

Any idea what I can use it for???? Thanks.

oh dear Cathy.. I for one, don't know what else you could use it for. Funny, i was at Michael's yesterday after a family movie day outing (went to the Theather to watch Ironman..so darn funny movie..lol) and i saw that particular glue you mentioned.

Anyways, would it stick 2 ribbons together? If it does, maybe you could still use it for fusing/layered bows in lieu of Fabric-Tac. ?
