Default Newbie - What do I need to get to start making bows?

What are the "must have" items to start making bows? I have twin girls and I'm not looking to make money on these. I just want to start making bows to go with their outfits. I'm tired of paying money at Gymboree for barrettes and corkers that don't stay in their hair. Thanks so much!

I think there is a list of things somewhere on this forum. But you do need ribbon, alligator clips, and a hot glue gun and glue.

Is there a certain kind of alligator clips? Where's the best place to get them? What's the best size ribbon for a 6 year olds bows?
Thanks for your help!

I like to use double prong alligator clips that you can get from Sally's. They are on sale right now 100 for $3 and something (I think the sale ends Saturday). My daughter is 3 and I like to use 7/8 size ribbon, it depends on how big you want the bow, you might want to try 1.5, JMO.
