Default How do you line a snap clip 30mm?

Hi
i jus got some snap clips and am having trouble lining them. i use a hot glue gun. it's hard to pull the ribbon through the middle (when the snap is open) after i apply the glue because it's so tight around that area. it ends up messy and a little crooked.

any ideas?

All I can say is practice! Also - what size ribbon are you using? Sometimes if the ribbon doesn't want to go the way I want it.. I do to a smaller size.

I have done it both ways but found that there is more room for bending the clip if you don't line it all the way underneath.

My sister lined this one (all the way). I line them half way. I've sold both styles and nobody complained either of them. So I think both are fine.

I know that I have seen instructions somewhere on how to line a clippie (where you wrap the ribbon around the sides), can someone please point me in the right direction where to find this info. THANKS!

i tried using a tweezer to pull the ribbon through to the end. i think it works, but you got to do it real quick b4 the glue dries.
