I use the sally clip with 3/8th organdy ribbon to tie/crease the bow. Works FANTASTIC for me! So fast and easy!

I haven't tried the alligator clip but I have used the wire, floss, upholstery thread, and cable ties. I think I prefer using the upholstery thread and needle. It ties better. I still use the cable ties to gather my layered bows together in a tighter grip.

I found them at Wal Mart in the automotive area. They are either black or clear. They kind of look like those thick plastic ties that police use as handcuffs but smaller.

Thanks!!!

The cable ties I use for my layerd bows because it can get hard to tighten the centers. I don't keep the cable tie on. I tighten it as tight as I can (I make sure I am off centered. Then I go back with needle and thread and reinforce it but I do this in the center. After everything is tied I will cut the cable off. At first it took me a long time to do this but now I have gotten used to it that it goes by quickly for me.
