Question Which end up

I have recently come across a few bows attached to their alligator clips with the flat side up. I would have never thought of doing it that way as I have always attached mine with the curved side up. So, I thought I would throw this out there to see how others are doing theirs.

Thanks for playing!

I do curve side up on everything except flowers. I like the flowers to be on a flat surface. I think they look better that way.

I'm new to it so not been doing it for too long, but I automatically put them with the curved side up, never really thought about doing it the other way.

Does anyone know if it feels odd having one upside down in your hair? I guess that's simple enough to find out, since I have clips sitting next to me lol.

I seem to always put my bow so the flat part of the clip sits on the child's head.

I put the flat side up, it seems the curve would sit better against a curved head, and the flat side give a nice base for a bow or flower without distorting it.

Mostly I do a lot of sculptures, and many of them need a flat surface to adhere to.

But I used to use them curved side up when I first started.

I put curve up, for me I have found that if I do flat side up they don't stay in as well, but that's just me.

LOL! That is funny! It crossed my mind that maybe they were mine, when I saw you were from KY.

You should come see the stuff when we set up at the Flea Market in the KY expo center or the State Fair.
