hot glue doesn't work even after i sanded the bottom to rough it up some.
what kind of glue can i use to attach a clear flat bottom marble to ribbon?
background: this is the last step in completing a christmas present for my mil.

Glue dots or Zots seem to do the trick for most material on my layouts... maybe give those a try?
Let us know how it goes.

I use the red backed tape (like those below). It's extra sticky and nothing moves when I use it

For things that I need to stick together permanently, I use a glue called Liquid Fusion. It holds pretty much everything together (metal, brass, wood, plastic, chipboard to other surfaces and vice versa, rocks, ceramic, glass, fabric....)

Zip dry - but it dries super fast so work quickly!!

update: I am using e6000. so far so good. we will see after it cures completely




I went this route because the ribbon will be hanging from a larger plaque with the marbles acting as a weight.
