Default wood letter clip question

I have these cute wooden letters (Wood Letter Sets - the cursive ones) and I want to paint them and add to clips. They are about an inch high and would obviously hang way off the top and bottom of the clip if I attached the clip horizontially - perpindicular to the letter. Should I attach them vertically - so the clip runs up and down behind the letter? That makes more sense structurally, but you would pretty much have to wear them up and down.

What do y'all think?

Also, I was thinking about just painting them white and offering on different color clippies. Any thoughts on that?

I'm not following you on the last part. Do you have a pic?

I have been wanting to do this also, but I plan on having blank clips and letting the customer pick the color letter and clip the glue together so they can feel like they made there own. KWIM?

I think wmfjones75 is saying she puts the letters so they hang off the top and bottom like you said in your first post. Thats how I would do it to.
