I saw those but got these instead since they are longer but I'm not sure if the tension would be tight enough for a larger bow.

And I think it will take some experimentation to figure out how to get the "M" crease which is supposedly better than the "W" crease.

Do you remember what these are called? There is a Sally's within driving distance of me but I'd rather check online first to save time in the store.

I used these when I was still learning to make bows except I used the longer ones because of the wider ribbon I would use. I called these my "training wheels". Much cheaper than the gator bite and work just as great.

I bought these when I first started and love them! they are short when doing larger bows but it holds them in place so well!

They're called Small Section Clips and were literally right under the longer, multi-colored ones.
