This might sound ridiculous - but I've been trying for about 2 weeks now to successfully tie a ribbon around a cupcake case and have it stay there - I can seem to tie it right but not keep it there. And when I do its looking pretty rough from all the messing about.
I've tried a glue gun, but it just shows through and doesn't look smooth/neat at all.
Have you tried glue dots? They are in the scrap booking aisle, but they are clear little dots of glue thA will stick to pretty much anything!
