I’m totally decided on making scroll invitations such as the one in the photo, but i want to actuly use a glue dot to secure the ribbon to the program so that even when the guests untie the ribbon it will stick be connected to the back of the paper.. Does anyway know the best way to do this? I’m guessing that hot glue would show through the other side of the paper? but would glue dots be strong enough for ribbon?

Glue dots would be strong enough. You could also use rubber cement, faux wax that you use with a low temp glue gun, or xyron tape. Depending on the size of the ribbon, you could also use a little double sided tape.

what about stringing the ribbon through a hole punch??? that would keep it all together and no need for stickies 🙂

I used double sided craft tape to attach my belly band ribbon to the little paper cutout i made.. worked like a charm! GL!

Yeah, when it comes to ribbon, double-sided tape rocks. I used it for our invitation jackets and it held perfectly.

I’m a DIY bride and I’ve used hot glue for EVERYTHING! I guess it would depend on the type of paper whether or not it’d show up on the other side, but none of my hot glued papers had that problem. Just test a little piece and see if it works.

Hot glue is great for most things, but from my experience it tends to make a hard lump or line under thin material.
I definitely am in love with double sided tape! I am not sure how rubber cement would hold up, though. Maybe do a test run of all of the suggestions and go with what works best! Then let us know, so we don’t have to do one haha! 😉
Good luck!! I love your idea!
