So, I'm starting to make cards and am not sure of the best way to attach a ribbon... I see some of the posts have the ribbon tucked under the paper on the front of the card...Is it glued to the paper or to the back only? How do you make this all stay together and hold on the card?? Any input/suggestions/other opsts are welcome! :)

Thanks in advance!!

Sometimes I will use my ATG gun to adhere a piece of ribbon right to the front of a card, or sometimes you can use regular scothc tape to tape the ends of a piece of ribbon to the underside of your patterned paper or cardstock... Some people wrap the ribbon all around the front of the card as well. It's all in your style, and trust me, you'll find your style ;)

I use regular tape. Tape the two sides of the ribbon to the back of the card and then attach that to you actual card. It's always a fresh clean look to me.

I use my ATG gun. It seems to work the best for me.
