Default Question: How do you secure ribbon?

//www.splitcoaststampers.com/gallery/photo/639836

Such as in the card in the link above - I find that I've been using ribbon but not necessarily a bow, so I wrap the ribbon around into the inside of the card and the back of the card. When I use the SU grosgrain ribbon, I can secure it with a glue dot, but any other kind of ribbon, and it doesn't hold, it just pops off - any suggestions?

Another good reason to invest in an ATG...I love using this to attach ribbon. I just run it along the back of the ribbon and voila! Sticks great!

I use Tacky tape for most ribbon that I don't tie in a bow. There are different widths available from 1/8 inch to a full inch.

I use mini glue dots, dotted along the back. I would use three along the front of the card and then a dot on each of the ends to attach it to the card base.

I use Making Memories Ribbon Glue. It's cheap and AWESOME. Got it at Michael's. Plus, it has a TINY tip so it's great for even thin ribbon. The best is that it comes with a small tool to unclog the tip when it gets clogged. Just LOVE it.

I use glue dots or run it through my xyron x. I haven't had any problems with embellies coming off, but I do like to use adhesive!

I'm not sure what an ATG is, but I just use regular Tomboy adhesive rolls or SU sticky strip. It all holds very well.

I just found out about the ATG adhesive gun. I'm sure you need that applicator if you are using the tape.
