Just glue the korker on with a dab 'o glue, making sure the little uncurled ribbon is perpendicular to the clip, and wrap the ends of it underneath,trim any extra, and glue in place like you would any other normal bow center.

This just gives it a bit more hold in my opinion, and even with substantial pulling (I do test pulling on everything to see if it will come off easily) they don't budge a bit!

Does that make sense at all? Wait! I just realized I may have pictures! Ooo, I do - yay!

I put them in this thread:
Now this is a super cool idea, thank you for your knowledge!
