Default Bar bows...need help!

I am looking for someone who makes a lot of these. I would like to know if anyone is willing to share some ribbon lengths for these. Also, what is the correct way when adding your center. Should it go around the clip, or do you just glue your loop to the top of your alligator clip?

I have been looking at tons of these on Etsy to see how people add the center strip. How do you get real tall perky loops? I have them if I push up on them, however they get squished when I put them in daughters hair.

I appreciate any help! Just not sure what size my loop should be. I think I last cut mine at 3 1/2 inches.

What about ribbon lengths for a french clip?

Yep I cut mine at 3 1/2 as well. They will flatten out if your don't apply stiffener. Some people put dowels inside the loops before they spray them to help hold the shape while they dry. HTH

I took someone's advice on here and stuck straws in the loops and sprayed with Stiffen stuff. I cut to 3 1/2 as well.
