GlueGlider PRO Review

GlueGlider PRO Review - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

I was so excited to try out my new GlueGlider PRO!

Have any of you tried it out yet?

The first thing I tried with it, was adhering two ribbons together to get the double sided look.

I put the adhesive all along the ribbon, but when using it for adhering two ribbons together, I think you could get away with putting the adhesive every few inches or so.

Making this Twisted Boutique bow was SO much easier without worrying about keeping the ribbons together.

I also used the adhesive to put my ribbon on the clip.

The lined clip looks so much cleaner than my usual hot glue gun would do.
And it was really easy to put on.

I think I will be playing around with two ribbons in one layer more now that I have the GlueGlider PRO adhesive.

The ribbons I used for this bow came from the Oopsy Daisy Ribbon Mix.

I also used the GlueGlider PRO on another bow I made.

I just love the new look my clips have thanks to this adhesive.

Here is the back of the bow and the lined clip.

    Is it just like double sided sticky tape? How easy is it to finish off the end?

      Yes it is. The applicator makes it very easy to apply without having to touch the adhesive. For the ends, I would leave a little bit of extra ribbon to grip while I applied the adhesive. Then I cut off the end and sealed with my lighter. Does that answer your question?

    I used to finish my clips that way but they don’t slide into hair very easy, actually it tends to hurt! I leave the bottom prong unlined and it goes into hair much better. Does it actually hold the ribbon?

      Audra, I usually do the same thing, but covered it all because the person I made the bow for prefers them that way. :) It does hold the ribbon! Strong fingers could get the ribbon off, but that’s the same thing with the hot glue. It’s perfect for it’s purpose.

    I have a glu glider but found that I went through too many cartridges using it for scrapbooking and the cartridges are pricey.

    Is it easy to glue the tight spaces like the tie inthe middle? That is always the trickiest part for me. I feel like it looks like a hot mess when I glue the ribbon to make the center tie for the bow.

      I used hot glue to put the knot in the center. I will have to try it. I don’t think it would be too hard to do it.
