Mine were maroon plastic too.

I tie with dental floss but I've been wanting to do the sewing method.

I've done it successfully a few times but I don't think I'm doing it right...it's so much harder!

There was a tut on here on how to sew but I can't find it anymore

I've tried every method there is and the only thing that works for me is the Gator Bite. I wish that a similar product would come out that was a lot cheaper. The Gator Bite is pricey, but I have definately gotten my money's worth. I lost mine one time and tried the alligator clip technique, but my creases never would work out right. Your pictures are really good, but I still think that the gator bite makes better creases IMO.

If you're using a Sally clip, see if this will help hold it in place.
After you have the jumbo clip on your bow, take a regular double prong alligator clip and put it on the tips of the jumbo clip. It'll pinch them together, and hold it tighter. Just make sure you have the alli clip on far enough or it will fly off! HTH

Haha, me too! I think i'm just going to have to go ahead and order mine. I've tried most other methods and why not try this one too.

Ladies - I have the gator bite and don't really use it but after reading your post and saying that it doesn't hold, it came to me.....why not glue a no slip grip to the clip so it doesn't slip on the ribbon? Would that help you?
