I love TOTTS!!! Their instructions are easy to follow and there is a ton of info in there. I printed them and put them in a binder with protective sheets so it would be easy for me to access them when I am trying something new or need help with a bow.

I don't have the Gator Bite. But have used the Sally's clip...... Same idea. And it works. Alot cheaper. I think it helps alot and makes it alot faster. But I learned first by using my fingers..... and believe me I had a few choice works before I finally got it. I think you really should learn to do your creasing by hand and then you can take short cuts if you want. I know alot of the time now..... I don't think my bows are as good than when I creased by hand. And I used wire to tie them off.

But what ever works for you is what you should do.

Can you find the Sally's clip at the Sally's beauty store? And by any chance does someone have a pic of what it looks like so that i don't get the wrong one. From this thread I am getting the idea especially being a newbie that I should use the Sally's clips since it is a cheaper option and get the TOTT's!

i bought the smaller sally clips today, i guess maybe i should return them for the bigger ones?? the smaller ones seemed to have tighter grip.. so in your opinions should i return them for the bigger ones??

Ya know I have been doing my bows without anything for over a year....after watching this video.....I am going to get some Sally clips!!!! Seems it would help so you can check to see the loops are even and so much easier than twisting your hand around to make sure...only to have to start over...LOL

I just purchased the gator bite. I can't wait to get it. Hopefully it won't take long to get here..I'm anxious to try it out. We don't have a Sally here or else I would've gotten a clip from there to try first. Instead I purchased a pack of super duper large paper clips from Walmart to get an idea of how it might come together and it worked pretty good. Didn't hold the bow quite tight enough for me, but I made it.
