Default Re: Alligator or French Clip?

Thanks for posting this question. I'm not at this point myself but I'd been wondering about whether the weight of the bow will pull the liner off the clip.

I'll have to keep the tip about "clear(er)" glue sticks being better and also the tip about tying the ribbon on before applying the center knot.
