What glue is the best for attaching ribbons to cards? Not bows but longer strips of ribbons? Tried several options at the craft store and not happy with any of them.
Thanks for any advise!

I have problems with ribbon as well, my best luck is with hi-tack tape (with the red backing) and ATG. I have also been known to add a brad or two.

Glossy accents or ATG gun. Also, glue dots when I wrap the ribbon to the back of card - no one cares what that looks like.

I use Scor-Tape. I tape 2 or 3 foot of ribbon and put in the drawer. When ever I need a ribbon, I cut what I need and it's ready to use.

I run ribbon through my Xyron, filling up the space with other little embellishments that I save for future use.

I also run ribbon through my Xyron. I works great. I've also used Glue Lines with thicker ribbon, and sometimes I just staple each end.

I like glue dots and/or mini glue dots.

I use Beacon's Fabri-Tac. It's a bit pricey, but takes very little. It dries quickly and doesn't mar the ribbon/lace. Easy to thin with nail polish remover, so you can use it to the last drop.

I use 3 things It is scrapbook adhesive brand photo tape. it is very very cheap. it is easy to use quickly & it is dry I love it if my ribbon is white or sheer I use my xron X. soometimes I need to use my ATG gun but it sticks fast so you need to be careful where it goes. I have lots of glues for scrapping but I love that the tape is dry so I use it instead. it is very cheap the tape also comes in a dispenser for 3.

Double-sided tape for me.
