Default Finishing the bow (adding the barrette and center)

I am having such a hard time with finishing the bow, it looks great till the end, when I add the 3/8 to the center it separates the bow top and bottom and then sometimes it isn't centered anymore!! I am seriously about to beat my ribbon! lol.

When it comes time to add the barrette and glue the 3/8" to the center, how do you finish your bows?

What kind of clip are you putting the bow on? Just an alligator clip, snap clip, french clip? Depending on if you line your clip first, then apply the bow to the clip (add a little hot glue to the back), and you can either wrap the 3/8 around the bow & glue to the back of the bow itself, or if you'd rather you can also wrap the middle loop so that it is wrapped around the clip itself (as long as you are doing a french clip--an alligator clip wouldn't work too well--too much bulk) I don't know if I am helping you at all, so I apologize if I'm not!!

Its a french barrette - I have started folding the center of the 3/8" ribbon to half the width of it.
