I made these fun wands for two purposes - to be decorations for my daughter's birthday party in October, and to show the kind of thing we can make at the Magic Wand Funshop I'm hosting at the Good Vibrations Unschooling Conference in San Diego.
In the past I've used hot glue, but this time I used my home made Best Ever Glue dots to hold the ribbon to the dowel. I just grabbed a dot from the release paper with the ribbon every three or four inches as I wound and the ribbon adhered instantly and perfectly - and no burnt fingertips.
I was very pleased to be able to use tiny dabs of the Best Glue Ever to adhere my cut out embellishments (thank you Cricut) and rhinestones to the images...
... and of course I used the Embellie Gellie to place the small pieces so easily.
I also used Best Glue Ever dots to adhere rhinestones to the ends of some ribbons.
And here's a close-up of one of the wands:
