Well, if I am using alligator clips I do not wrap the center knot under the clip. I make the complete bow with the knot and then glue the whole thing to the clip. If I am making bigger bows and using french clips then I take the clip apart and glue the knotted center around the clip and then reassemble. I line the french clip with ribbon and then apply glue the whole length of the clip and attach it to the bow. Then wrap my knot piece around and glue. I hope this makes sense. Maybe I need to take some pictures of what I am talking about.
