Are you talking about the mini 30mm ones? They are the biggest PAIN IN THE BUTT!! Here's a picture of the underside of mine. I find that they snap tighter if you don't line the entire the bottom (like the green one).

To attach the bow, you just glue it on, there's no other way (that I've found anyway). I don't use these ones very often and usually only attach little appliques to them.

Hope that helps!

Totally agree! These are a pain in the butt, but are so great. I prefer these in my DD's hair because they are not as bulky as an alligator clip, and hold the hair great!
I also agree that adding just an applique is an easy way to adorn these clips.
Practice on a few to get your technique down. I'm pretty sure I tossed about 10 of these before I thought they looked good.

I agree with the other two ladies--they ARE a pain in the butt! lol.

I also only line mine halfway (like the white clip in the picture), because they hold hair "tighter." Definitely practice with some ribbon you won't feel bad about wasting--it took me forever to get these down, and I wasted a lot of ribbon in my first few attempts...
