Default Attaching bulky bows

I was wondering how you ladies go about attaching really bulky bows to your clips. Do you tie/glue all of your layers together and secure it to the clip and then finish it off with the center ribbon (this is what I do)? What is the biggest/bulkiest bow you'd put on an alligator clip?

My niece has really thin hair so the alligator clip doesn't work on bulky bows for her. I usually put her hair in a ponytail and use a small french clip attached to the bulky bow. The ponytail keeps it secure so it doesn't slide off.

I try to sew each layer rather than glue because the glue makes it even more bulky (at least on my part).
