Default Attaching alligator clip to tulle puff

Hi, all! I've been lurking here lately, and I love all the wonderful advice given.

I make tulle puff bows, and I am trying to figure out a better way to attach them to an alligator clip. I use the cardboard circles to make my bows and then tie off with some sturdy string. I have been sliding the top of the alligator clip under the string and then hot-gluing a no-slip grip on top of that. However, this makes for a very buried alligator clip because my bows are very full.

Does anyone know of a better way to attach a clip? I'd love to know! Thanks!

do you mean like pom poms? I make those and attach them to the end of glitter pencils to make wands. I would love to see them on a clip tho!

Yes, the pom-pom things! They look so cute as bows -- I just need to figure out how to not make the clips so buried under all that tulle!

You could try sewing them on a pony tail elastic.

What about gluing a felt circle on the back then glue the clip to that to give it a 'bottom' instead of such a round ball.

That is exactly what I do. I used to attempt to hold the alligator clip open and tie the string around - to no avail!!!! So now I cut a circle of wool felt that coordinates and glue that to the bottom of the puff and then glue it to the clippie.
