Default Re: How do I attach the bow? Help please!

I am trying to make 2 inch pinwheels on lined alligator clips, can someone please explain how to do it? Or, if anyone knows of a good tutorial with pics that would be great too. I really need some help!!

I tie my bows to the alligator clip as well...I use a clothes pin to hold the alligator clip open as I tie and attatch the middle of the bow and then i also wrap the remainder of the ribbon from the Alligator clip over top. Sometimes I do just glue the clip to the back of the bow...but living in Guam...alot of times our glue comes undone because of the heat. Wish i had a remedy for that one!
