Default Question about covered clips

I've always coved the alligator clips I use for my bows. Never really thought about the fact that when I use lighter colored ribbon, the hot glue shows through. I'm trying to make heart clippies now and I don't want it to show. Is there another glue I can use? Maybe a different technique? Here is a picture so you can see what I'm talking about. You can see the glue on the pink clips, but not the red. The only difference is the ribbon color and also I used single alligator clips for the pink. Double alligator clips for the red.

this could just be me, but i use more glue on the tops and press my finger across the clip really quick after i put the glue on, then wipe any excess of the sides, now i don't see the glue cause it's all over (under) the entire clip. make sense?

That's what I do. I can now touch hot glue and not even flinch!

I always press on the ribbon and glue- squeezing out the excess. Otherwise I get ridges in the ribbon.
