Default Re: HELP with creasing small boutique bows

I tie and just get one crease in the center with the 3/8" bitty bows. Mine are just slightly over an inch so the gator bite does not work for creasing, I actually only use the gator bite for my 7/8" and 1.5" ribbons and also only for my twisteds, I don't use it for any other bows.

Instead I use 2 alligator clips, one on either side of the center, I still have to push down with my fingers while I pull tight, but I have found this to be easier than trying to get such a small bow into the gator bite without loosing shape.

I do not have any "in the process" pictures, but here is the finished product.
