I sandwiched the ends of mine between a monogram backing (cardstock at 2.5×2.5) and a sticker monogram (2×2).

@MsGinkgo:  I used a glittery ribbon for my bands, and had the same problem! I tried a bunch of different adhesives, and the UGlu dashes worked the best. They are super strong! I bought them at Joanns.

@MsGinkgo:  Yeah, it just sounds like you need a better adhesive… the foam sticky things are notorious for not being strong enough.

I used a spot of glue from my glue gun. Worked just fine.

I think I just used the super thin glue dots.

scrapbookers tape works awesome.. If you have a hobby lobby or michaels, do a google search for a coupon, they always have 40% off coupons which can be printed out and used in the store.

@MsGinkgo:  yeah those foam things are meant to add dimension, not seal. I would add a different adhesive in there.
