Default Lining snap clippies

So I've been lining snap clippies by opening the clip, inserting the ribbon, closing the clip, putting a line of hot glue along the top of the clip, gluing the ribbon down, flipping the clip over and gluing down a small portion of ribbon to finish it off. I'm finding, however, that the snap clip doesn't really 'snap' when it's lined like this. I've seen an alternative to this where you only put a smaller portion of ribbon in the clip opening rather then the entire way (I hope that makes sense). How on earth do you do this though? Glue would get all over the portion of the clip that you insert in to the hair. It just doesn't make sense to me and I want it to work!

HELP! TIA

i've switched over to clip covers . . . but if i'm in a pinch (no pun intended) and don't have a coordinating color . . . i make a slit in the ribbon about 1/2" from the end, heat seal the cut and put the skinny back/bottom piece thru the slit . . . and then lightly glue it on. the end that has the slit then winds up being glued on the top/curved end of the snap clip.

yup, you're right . . . if you get too much glue or the ribbon's pulled too tight, i find that the snap goes out of the clip.
