Default Making Reindeer Alligator Clips

Hi everyone, I am making reindeer faces that I will put on alligator clips, but I was wondering if they should be sewed on or do you think gluing would be enough? My reindeer are ribbon, but they go on like this:

Default I'll post pics of all the bows I'm making soon for support!

ok, I used the glue gun and it does seem fine. I wouldn't care so much if they were just for my girls, but they are for a craft fair. I went from making a few bows for my girls here and there, to getting ready for a craft fair this week at work! I wouldn't have even considered it if it hadn't been at work. There won't be many people there, but I want to show you guys the bows I made to get feedback before Thursday! Thanks goodness for you guys! this is a great group!

Default Finally a pic

I've been crazy trying to make as many bows for my craft fair tomorrow! I'll try to remember to take a pciture of my bows for that, but here is the reindeer clips I made. They are pretty easy to do, straightforward as it looks.
