Default Question about baby/mini alligator clips

Anyone that has them - do you just cut them yourself or is there actually somewhere to purchase them?

I sooo need to get some - and while i don't mind cutting them myself, if I can purchase them from somewhere it would be easier...(well depending on the cost i guess) - it would at least eliminate one more thing to do

thanks in advance!!!

I believe your option is to just cut off 1/4" of the tip or so. It's what I do. Then I fully line the clip. Use a good pair of tinsnips and it'll be easy. I have my DH do all mine

Barbara - yeah that's what I was thinking....it might be worth a shot.....but,

Judy - how many I would want depends on how much they would cost. you can e-mail me at [email protected] if you want....ultimately, if it's more worthwhile to just purchase them already done I'd probably want a constant supply.....not sure how many to start, although like I said, depends on the $$$. Do you make them or do you get them from a supplier? I'm not going to ask your supplier (although wouldn't be upset if you shared) just curious...

thanks ladies

Oh Judy - you make a very very appealling offer

Yes, I think I'm in I might be more interested in 200 though if that's okay? (I have a show coming up at the end of the month and I'm pretty sure they'll be a hot seller!)

So that would be $20 (I'm fine to round the little bit up) plus whatever shipping is. I have paypal....when you get them or some of them done, will you e-mail me a photo before I pay? Just so I can see them (and as such get suuuuper excited ). How long to do you expect they will take to get done?

*eeeeeee*

Judy, THANK YOU for being soooo helpful and willing. My husband figured it was just as easy (and cheaper...lol) to just cut them ourselves...so for now I think we will go with that. BUT THANK YOU for your offer....I sure appreciate it!

does it work as well with single prong - or is double prong the preference?

thanks so much!

Judy, if your offer is open I would love, love, love it if you were able to do some for me. I'm slowly starting to get into bow making again and have a large order that I have got to get moving on.

Let me know

newtothis - sorry don't recall if you signed your name I am planning to just mark them all beforehand - cutting 1/2" off (so they are 1 1/4" not 1 3/4" like they come). That way Brent can just sit down and cut away without worrying they are all different sizes

Judy - you still offer a good bargain....I'll have to see how Brent feels after cutting 200 of them

Where do you get your alligator clips from ,judy? $5 for 100 of them is cheaper than I can get them...and as luck would have it there is nowhere in my city that sells them
