Default lining clips

What is the best way to line alligator clips? I can't ever get my straight is there a trick or do I need more practice? should I use somthing else besides hot glue, a glue that will hold when it's dry but that I can pull off and straighten while I'm making the clip?

michelle has a good tute in her instructions. Alibug did a post on this not too long ago. search alibug and see what comes up. I think it's just practice. My aren't always straight either. Sometimes the quality of ribbon makes a difference.

Practice helps, and I glue a little section at a time. I glue the little bit on the bottom, then do both top and bottom of the inside of the pinch, then the top of the pinch, then the res t of the top, and then the upper inside of the clip If you want to try another glue, try Fabri-tac. I just don't know if it holds as well. It would give you some time to reposition though.

It took me some practice for sure. For partially lined clips I cut mine 4 1/4' long. Then I hot glue about 3/4" to 1" and put in the inside top of the clip. Then I add glue to the top of the clip and press the ribbon down. Then a tiny bit to the top and bottom of the inside of the pinch. Then a little glue on the rest of the ribbon and wa-la. I hope that wasn't too confusing. There are probably pictures somewhere on this forum...
