Best Glue for Attaching Ribbon to Glass?

I've made a Glass Block for a friends birthday gift. I've tried using the Aleene's Clear Gel Tacky Glue..and it's just not working.

Any idea what I can use that won't show/bleed through on the ribbon, but will be a permenant?

Al what about hot glue. Thank you for the hints on the glass block post. Good to see your still around...

Leveta..thanks for the suggestion, but I've tried hot glue in the past. It just won't "stick" to glass.

Did you know that Hobby Lobby has the pre-drilled glass blocks. AND..they also have the stands for them.

Yes I've seen them. I've wondered how they work? Have you tried any??

How about trying some of that redline double stick tape. Just tape it together under the bow so you won't have to see anything. Do you put bows on?

Hey Kat! What you doing over here? lol

Well, I found some stuff at Hobby Lobby (in the glues/adhesives)called "Zips" and it seems to be working fine. There's 24' of it in the box.There's strips of adhesive down the center of the "tape".

Leveta..yes, I got one of the stands and I really like it! Regular $4.99, but I used the 40% off coupon!*S* I like that the bulb fits in the stand and you just sit the block over it. I also bought the little 7w light, instead of using the string of Christmas lights. I like that if the bulb burns out, it can be replaced really easy!
