Default How do you make alligator clips with more than one fold?

Can anyone tell me their method of making alligator clips with more than one fold/loop on the top? I've tried and they come out okay, but they're not consistent. I also wanted to know if you put glue on the entire ribbon before lining the clip and adding the fold/loop or if you do it as you line?

Thanks!

I don't know how to insert a photo Can anyone tell me? Basically, there's a hump/fold/loop before the slope up to the hinge, if that makes sense. So, it's not totally straight. It adds some interest to the barrette if you're just lining with ribbon. Does that make sense?

Do you mean following the contour of the pinch part of the clip?

that was the first thing that came to my mind too petals when i read that--i thought maybe she was talking about how to do that, but it just happened to be in one of the tutorials that i purchased, that how i knew how to do that--
if that's not it, sorry--i too am a little unclear about the "sloping" or hump you're talking about
