So this weekend I was making a ton of bows. I was kinda dreading attaching the centers. I had some 4 1/2 strips cut, sealed, and taped for lining the clips and I wondered if I could use those for the center and stop burning my fingers. It worked wonderfully! They look much cleaner too. I just cut them in thirds so about 1 1/2 inches each and wrapped. Does anyone else do this? Wondering how well it holds up.
