| | Re: how to use alligator clips
I sew my bows together and then hot glue them to the clip. Then I hot glue the center knot as well. I never use any wider than 5/8" ribbon for the center knot and have never had a problem with them being too thick inside the clip. I also have never had one come apart. In fact I made a mistake once and had to take a bow apart myself. I just about ruined the bow taking it apart, because the glue held so well.
I also do like samsmombeth and do not completely line the clip until after I have wrapped the center knot. I do it that way because it looks neater and also because I apply my non slip to the lined clip before I attach the bow.
