Default Re: LAMBS new RIB-N-RAPS template

I love these templates. I have had them for a while. I like that they have a big opening, so I can clip them with the gator bite. I don't make my twisted boutique bows with them, but do use them for pinwheels and tails down bows. They come out looking good everytime.

Here's a pic of what I mean (sorry for the awful picture):
I'm new here and browsing around for an affordable alternative to the Gator Bite for making boutique bows with sufficiently perky loops.

I came across this thread --and this post in particular-- and was wondering if anyone has perfected the Hair-Hardware/Sally's salon clip method.

I've studied the pics in the link and it looks like the clip they are using is the thinner metal kind (loosely resembling a paper clip) and that the thin (bottom?) half should crease the "X" part of the bow, which ultimately becomes the top part of the bow.

I'm guessing that would become easy with practice but that there is some sort of "knack" to shaping the loops so they wind up looking perky/quirky enough.
