Default Alligator clips with teeth...

do you line these? I tried and it was impossible, so now I just glue them to the bottom of the bow.

I love these for DDs hair. Is there anyway to dress these clips up some?

These are my favorite clips to use with larger bows/korkers/flowers because the teeth help grip the hair. I don't use them for bottlecaps or other smaller bows/clippies because you can't really "dress them up." I like the look of lined alli clips with grip strips for those types of clips...I just don't like the work/time involved with lining them. HTH

I agree with the above posting... I actually do spray paint mine though to match the item colour...

How do customers feel about these? I always thought they looked gross and would not buy one until I bought my dd a flower that was attached to one of these and fell in love with how tight they grip! Wow, they're awesome! But I never used them because I thought customers would not like the look, just like my first reaction.

My customers don't seem to mind them at all. I love them in DD's hair. But I do agree for flowers, and smaller items where it shows i'll be using regular ally clips that are lined. It's just so nice to not have to line one for bigger stuff. HAHA!

Long before I started making my own stuff, I ordered some clips off of Etsy for my kids. Those clips were alligators with teeth and were partially lined! She seemed to have used hot glue to line them. So I suppose it can be done but would be soooo time consuming

These are the one's I got ....
