Default Has any one put bows on snappies??

I have a potential customer who's daughter won't keep alligator clips in her hair. She asked about putting bows on Snappies. Has anyone tried this? I have an idea how I would do it (provided it doesn't look too messy) but I thought I'd ask here before I wasted my time! lol.

All of the snap clips (the metal ones anyhoo) have a little hole on the "fat" end - so you can secure any bow with a few stitches along with glue to keep them on well.
I put baby-bows on snaps LOL - but I'm sure the bigger ones will work well, too.

I have put a mini double ruffle bow on a snap clip and I was pleased with the way it turned out. It's the one on the right (obviously).

Hot glue...hasn't come off yet. I lined the snap clip first and then attached the bow.

my problem is when I line the clip with ribbon, it won't close. Does anyone else have that problem? How do I fix it? TIA

If you line your clips with ribbon can you still sew the bows on through the hole? Is the whole covered up? TIA

I just hot glue mine on too.
I haven't had any problems with them yet.

When I line the clips, they are lined all the way around so the hole is covered.

I follow the instructions the TRR has on their site..
