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 🙂

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!
