Default Dumb question, but I'm a rookie, so have mercy...

I have a bow that I made that I am going to consider a pinwheel bow. It's one of my first ones, so it's by no means perfect. But it's not too bad, lol. Anyway, I made it to be about 3 inches, and I have lined a 1 3/4 alligator clip...is the bow too big for the clip? I am new to alligator clips--I started learning with french clips so I have no idea. And, if it will work, how the heck do I attach it?

Like I said, I have the bow made, have the clip ready. I just don't know how to attach the big bow to the clip. Also, when you use the rubbery shelving paper for no-slip, is that your last step in putting the bow together, or should I have done it sooner? And about how much do I put on there?

thank you in advance. I am sure you will all get sick of my questions, now that I have came out of lurkdom, lol

When attaching bows to alligator clips I hot glue it to the clip before adding the bow center. Then I wrap the center around the bow and clip so it stays on the clip better. make sense? If you have already made the bow, just glue it on!

For the gripper, I add it as my very last step.

Show us some pictures!

Yeah, right--I FINALLY get up the nerve to post for the first time and you want me to post a picture on the same day????


heehee...no, I would, but my camera is dead at the moment and I am charging it. I will post a pic when I can, because I would really appreciate feedback. My family seems to like my little bows, but my family would never be honest about it for fear of hurting my feelings. I need honest opinions, my 8 months preggo self can take it, despite my hormones, lol.

Thanks for responding, I am now attaching the bow to the clip as we "speak."
