Question Tuxedo bow/clip - clip side preference???

Do you have a preference on which side of the alligator clip you attach the little "tuxedo" bow to. I've always attached it to the top of the clip, but have also seen it attached to the flat bottom (an upside down clip).

What do you ladies do/like best?

Thanks,
Jen

I do them on the top of the clip (not the flat side) because I don't like having the bump of the clip against Someone's head.

Thank you - It's just a random occurance for me to see it the other way today and I was considering changing how I do them....not sure though.

I do it both ways depending on what I'm using it for. If I really need it to lay flat then I use the bottom flat side. When it's worn it's not a big deal to have the part of the clip that sticks up against the curve of the head. It kinda fits that way.

I agree - I do it that way for flowers that need to adhere to the flat side of the clip. I'm sure either way is great.

hmm ive never thought about attaching them to the bottom of the clip? i make my tuxedo bows slightly smaller so it dont fold up on the lip of the clip. i do them in alternating colors looks really cute that way ive also offset them a little from the top of the clip with a different color linning the clip those look really cute too
