Default Mini Pendant Banner Expertise

Hi all! I'm trying to add a mini pendant banner to my card (they seem to be all the rage this year, don't they?). The trouble is, I can't seem to figure out an effective way to get those tiny triangles to stick reliably to the ribbon I want to use.

I've been trying glue dots on a 1/8 inch taffeta ribbon.

Need to use different glue? Maybe it only works with bakers twine? Or maybe I should stitch them on the sewing machine?

Anyone have some experience on this?

Thanks!
Carrie

It might be a little more trouble, but could you cut two of each triangle, and then "sandwich" glue them together around the ribbon? I like Tombow Mono Multi liquid glue for things like this.

I like to punch holes and thread it through. The sandwich method mentioned works well too!

Thanks for he ideas. Now that you mention hole punching I see that's the way they'd seem to do it in the SU catty. Not sure why I didn't think of that! Need to change up my ribbon for some thinner twine to make it work well I think.
