I've tried runner tape, foam mounts and glue, but it seems like they don't work all that well. Is there anything stronger or better I can use? What do you use?

I use dotto- the permanant ones. It works very well for me. I put the runner right on the ribbon- that seems to hold aLOT better. For fibers, I use diecut adhesive.

I just discovered these this weekend at the crop. They are called Zots and they are thin and clear and very sticky, so GREAT for ribbons and fibers.

I use a xyron sticker maker - LOVE it and its super easy, clean, etc. I have the 150 and 250 and both work great for ribbons (as well as other goodies )

That looks like what I'm looking for. Thanks Rusha.

I've not actually tried glue stick. I've used liquid glue and that was disastrous as it seeped through the fiber and showed up on the front.

This looks very interesting. I saw one at my LSS but didn't know what it was for really. I'll have to take a close look next time.

Thanks for all the suggestions ladies.

I love ZOTS... they also make ZIPS which is like a continuous line of adhesive that is great for ribbon.

The company that makes zots has some zips. They are bascially the glue dots but in a strip. So I get those for my ribbon. Love them!
