I have some duck bill clips I use to hold my work in progress. They are longer than the other clips we use. My fingers cramp and my wrists get sore if I am in a push to get a bunch of them done in one night. I always use Tiger Balm on my wrists before I start. I always over cut my ribbon as well and just use the scraps to make clippes with when I am done. I have 6 sandwhich bags full of scraps here now. Been making them for a few years not so it adds up. I hate to make clippies but with the double sided tape it is much easier and faster.
