French clips may work that way too actually...

Are you worried about seeing the clip? I would think it would be no different than if you clipped it in hair. What do you mean?
Oh, I see...what size of alligator clip would you use for a 3-4 inch bow? Just thought that when it comes to adding a clip to hair, the french barrette was more secure. Then again I have never had my daughter wear a alligator clip with or without a gripper.

So just line the alligator clip with ribbon then add it to a boutique bow just as you would with a french barrette, then add a gripper?

Where would I buy quality grippers at?

Thanks for all your help, you rock & deserve a cookie!
