Default Attaching alligator clip with teeth

So I am making a few felt items for a friend and she wants them on the alligator clips with teeth. It doesn't look like I can line them since they are so narrow which is not a big deal. I don't need to line them. Do I just use hot glue and run a long strip down the top of the clip to attach? I've never used these before. Thanks.

That is a very good question. I have never used alligator teeth clips. Obviously ribbon would not sit properly on there. I wonder if it is better to use thread and glue to attach? I am really not sure....just trying to think how I would attempt to do it. Hope you can get better responses.

Ok so I was looking through my daughters bow and realized I did use one of these on a singed (i don't think thats spelled right) flower and all I did was run a line of glue done the whole length and then added it. I did not however line them. Not sure if that helps or not!

Yeah, I didn't think you could line it b/c it's rounded on top. Thanks. I was thinking just running hot glue down it but wasn't sure it was enough to hold it. Guess I'll try it. The thread sounds like a good idea too since these are felt clips.

I don't use them for a big reason -they hurt! a lot of stores use them for flowers,bows but have you tried them in your hair? it pulls quite painfully to get them out-If you do use them they are done with felt pads then the flower/bow is hot glued onto it -the felt is wrapped around stays well
I wont use them for babies/kids but teens/tweens is fine they are use to pain
