Default Tuxedo Bow Clips

Can anyone help me out with my tuxedo clippies. How long are you cutting the ribbon on top, and are you wiring down the middle or gluing it? Any help would be appreciated, mine are turning out lopsided and crooked, I am just talking about the little clips. I saw someone on here had made them with the glitter ribbon and they look great. Also, should I starch them to make the loops stand up....Please help me out, I want to sell some at my show next Friday.

What I do is whatever size clipping I am putting it on, I lay the ribbon across it and double that size plus a smidge......

so if I am using a 50MM clippie (almost 2") I will cut my ribbon to be like 4.25 inches

Hope that helps

I made some double layer ones for boys. They are made like that tut. but cut a second ribbon 1-2" small, depending on how you want it to look, and put on top of the first layer.
