Default wrapping snap clips

Yup. Newbie here w/probably a dumb question. I have a 19 month old w/little hair. I bought 30mm snap clips and a bunch of 3/8in ribbon. Of course all the directions I've saved are for alligator clips (oops). I found the directions for wrapping snap clips and think this will be the best option for my daughter. However, the directions say to use 1/4in ribbon to wrap the clip. Can I just as easily use the 3/8in ribbon for wrapping? Are any modifications needed for this? If 3/8in won't work for wrapping, do you have any suggestions for using the 3/8in ribbon with the 30mm snap clips? THANKS!!!

Hi and welcome to the group! I wouldn't "wrap" the snap clip in 3/8 ribbon. Instead I would "cover" it,KWIM

yep, you could cover it with the 3/8 but you need 1/4 to wrap. make a bow and glue it to the big end of the snap clip.

Thank you. Can you point me in the direction of directions for covering snap clips? (I have them for alligator clips.) Thanks, again!!

Thanks, Judy!! Apparantly I had directions all along (didn't scroll down far enough). If these don't work out, you'll probably hear from me again. LOL

I wrap my larger snap clips with the 3/8- but it makes them fuller. Not very good for baby hair.

I cover all of my 30mm snap clips with 3/8 ribbon. Never attempted wrapping them. If you find that 3/8 ribbon doesn't quite cover the fat end, order your clips from Michelle (Hip girl boutique)-hers are not so wide at the end and are completely covered by the ribbon. Good luck!
