Default Re: How would a 2" salon clip (actually slightly shorter) look lined with 5/8" ribbon

Maybe today, but the girls are on vacation and I'm nervous using the glue gun around them. Not to mention they are like cats; they get right in the middle of whatever I'm trying to do.

What kind of embellishments have you used on a clip with a 5/8ths ribbon? I'm afraid the bottlecap will get lost against that much ribbon.

Thanks for the input.
i did 5/8 inch red w/white polka dots . . . then used one of my test rolled ribbon roses in black/white print w/a red wooden bead in the center of the roll . . . iirc the roll was about 1/4" larger on each side . . . and about 1/2 of the clip was exposed w/polka dotted ribbon. the older kids love these cause they're not all fruu fruu fancy.

glad to see someone else is not photo proficient/uploading to here!
