Default Pixie Puff - quick for my show tomorrow!

So do you tie them off or just glue them on the clippies? I tie them off usually but I have about 60 to do and I am ready to give up! Someone mentioned gluing and it sounds like she doesn't tie them off. Anyone else do this and does it hold?

I am not sure if I am right, but I am thinking this is a marabou puff bow, is that right? You know, all of us have so many different names for stuff!! If so, I just glue mine with a high heat glue gun. The glue in the low heat guns do not get hot enough to hold the way I want it to. Hope that helps!!

It's actually a tulle puff. I am going to try my hand at marabou puffs when they come in from the buy - Can't wait!

I glue the bottom to the top of a clip and then put a glob of glue under the top of the clip and tie the two long ends once in the glue (under the top of the barrette), hold for a couple of seconds, and then trim those ends to be flush with the rest of the puff.

Well, sorry I am no help there. I have been meaning to try those out for a while now, and make some to match my tutus. But I just haven't found the time yet. Good luck at your show!!

New to all this....also making tulle puffs as I call them...and wanting to attach to alligator clips.
I tied mine with ribbon instead of thread (the really thin kind) and I tied that around the lined clip (is that what you mean by tying off?) and then I also glued it on....

Does this sound about right?
TIA
