Default Help?!?! Am in a complete falaffle!!

Hiya!!

I'm new here and would like to attempt to make bows, clips and headbands for my 3 daughters!
I'm looking at the free instructions doodahs and it all looks fab to me but...
what sort of clip do I use? double prong, single prong etc? or does it not matter? if it doesn't matter...what clip would you say was best to use?

Thank You

I use headbands, alligator pinch clips (looks like an alligator mouth, you pinche it open), snap clips (you press the middle to snap open), and french clips. These are both good places to order from or you could get them at a local craft store. I use single prongs pinches for babies and double for bigger girls.

Ribbon And Bows Oh My!

You can use any clips you like. I prefer double pronged for most things.

But, did you just call yourself a falafel? LOL
Falafel - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

And if you like the headbands, just save yourself the time and buy the instructions form LCOB, theres a link in the paid instructions forum. I hate to buy instructions but couldn't be happier that I bought those.

omg!! haha i didnt know a falaffle was one of those, opps!!! I say that all the time, hmmmm should maybe rethink! if I get confused I tend to say I'm getting myself into a right faff then it somehow turned into falaffle

I'm going to hunt out some single and double prong doodahs and see how I get on, i'll be using them with cait 6yrs, harley-eve 5yrs and olivia-nicole 4mths

Also,

What's the best way to attach the ribbon to the actual clip? Would the method be the same with all types of clips?

Sorry for al the q's

It's all on preferance if the clips are single or double prong. I use both. I would use hot glue to line them though.
