For all of you paper scrappers, what type of adhesives do you use for ribbon? I am having a hard time finding the right combo. I have been using the square stickers (after finding out that liquid glue does not look right), however, sometimes it just won't stick well.
What's your favorite adhesive in general?
I've used glue dots and that works fine most of the time (not the raised ones, the flatter ones) though they're kind of a pain to adhere to the ribbon initially. I now have an adhesive roll that is working GREAT--it's like this one http://store.scrapbook.com/bb-tm62202.html
But the thing I like most is ribbon that already has adhesive
Now I'm curious to know what the experienced mamas are using!

For ribbons, I run it through my Xyron, just seems easiest to me. I try to run two pieces at the same time though, just to conserve it. I have the small one, the 150.
But for regular scrapbooking, I prefer the Dotto runners. In fact, I need to buy refills for both mine (I keep a permanent one and a repositionable one with my stuff at all times). I hate being out!

For ribbon I use a glue stick, which has worked well for me.

I use the xyron, glue dots and the tombo. But I like the xyron the best. I have the small one too like coolmama and I do the same thing, I try to conserve as much as possible.
There's something like Glue Dots only they're called Glue Lines. They work well for ribbon (and lots of other surfaces)
I also like to use STAPLES or brads!
I use either my Xyron or a glue stick--both work great
