Default can you line velvet ribbon?

I have made velvet lined alligator clips before, some of which were made with a very light pink and a light blue. The clip shows through, and I don't think it looks nice. I can probably choose bigger embellishments, but I like the simple look. Is there anything I can do to make the ribbon less see through?

Thanks,
Jennifer

Maybe you could line the clip in a similar color satin or grosgrain, then the velvet. Satin kind if sucks to line with, but the reason I was thinking satin is that it wouldnt be as thick.

That's my 2 cents.

You can just double line your clips. First the grosgrain then the velvet.

This is what I would think would work, however I've never used velvet to line clips with. I have however used it as a nonslip.

using tape instead of glue will be a big improvement if you aren't already. I found that with my white velvet.
I should also mention that my lighter coloured velvets -light pink and white, were purchased from Michael's and from UB. The quality wasn't nearly as good as the Swiss velvet from Artistic Ribbon. It's worth the extra $ (imho)
Good luck

Thanks for all of the great advice! I am going to play with lining it with another ribbon, and using tape as well... I have some D670 tape en route, so I can test it out soon (ish). If I can, I will post pics (if they look nice, that is).

I think they turned out pretty cute... figured if I had to line it, it might as well add a little something.
