I'm using interfacing as belly bands for my wedding invites and need help on figuring out how to adhere everything. 
Basically I printed out the pattern onto the interfacing and attached ribbon on the top and bottom with a double-sided tape roller.  I folded the ribbons over on one end to hide the raw edges and the tape seems to hold the ribbon pretty well.  I was going to use the tape to form the loop with the interfacing, but it's not staying.  So any suggestions on what to use?  So far I considered a couple options.  Sewing with right sides together, but then I'd have to iron all the seams open.  Iron on hem tape-but I can never get it right without making a mess of the fabric and again that's a lot of ironing.  Or fabric glue which makes it stiff Sad
Any other ideas of what else I can try?

If you mean, when you say making a loop, connecting the ends together to make the belly band, have you tried a glue runner or glue dots?  I was told to use glue dots when taking a card making workshop for things like ribbons/decorations because they stick a bit better.  I quite like them for that.  You can stick them on with the dispenser, and I think I have lifted them up with fingers to place them more precisely and they have nice adhesion.  I found them recently at a great clearance price at a local Marshalls, otherwise you can pick them up at scrapbooking or general craft stores - you can get them in different thicknesses, and in permanent or non permanent formulations.

What about double sided interfacing? Again a lot of ironing though.

I thought I'd share a little update in the off chance any one has a similar dilemma. I used the glue dots like Onyxnox suggested. They worked really well without adding any bulk since I was trying to keep it to one 1st class stamp and didn't want any "non-machinable" characteristics.  Cool
