Default how to cover snap clips with grosgrain ribbon....?

Hi There!

Can someone please show me how to cover snap clips with grosgrain ribbon?

Here is a picture of what i have done, but as you can see it is very lumpy and although it closes properly it can not grip any hair and simply slides right out. It doesn't look very nice at all! but i think it *could* look nice.

oh, and i used a hot glue gun.

Please help me....

Thank you so much!

I would also like any tips as I'm planning on adding these to my alligator clips.

practice makes perfect with these the more you do them the better you get

make sure you are using a high temp glue gun with a tip so you get the glue where you want it, i put my glue across the top and smooth the ribbon down with my thumb, mine were awful when i first started i have to throw away 10 bad ones for every good one, now (2 years later) they are almost always perfect.

thank you Shanna!

do you put the glue on the ribbon or the clip? and how does mine look at the back? do you go all the way up with the ribbon? because i noticed on your site that you mentioned that there is no need for no-slip grip as they are naturally non slip. however mine just slip right out!

i had a look on your site - everything you make looks so beautiful - i love your photos!

I have tried mine the same way (lining right up to the end), and I'm starting to wonder if that's what's making mine not turn out quite right. I'm very curious how other people do these.

so you put your ribbon on the clip snap it shut, then put your glue on the top on the clip, smooth your ribbon down, then flip it over and glue the little peice down, your back looks good i personally like the ribbon to be a little longer than you have it.

thanks so much for the kind words on my site! What size clips are you using? Mine are 30mm snap clips and once they are lined they dont slip out! I no bigger ones can and if they are bigger and you are trying to line with 5/8 ribbon that is really tough, bump down to 30mm snaps and line them with 3/8 ribbon.


i just went and looked you are using bigger ones with 5/8 ribbon those are even harder to get down i personally dont sell them, i use my 30mm for my babies and then i bump up to the 1 3/4 inch alligator with a no slip grip for the older girls,
