Unhappy I'm desperate!!!!

I am looking at making paci clips and have been looking at getting the KAMsnap pliers and snaps...however....

My question is what size have other people used AND did you use the snaps through one layer of ribbon? To make the loop at the end I am presuming you will have one snap with two layers and one snap with one layer. But I contacted one seller and she said she'd never imagine using snaps on one layer of ribbon...

Now I don't know what to do!!

Please someone help or point me in the right direction!

I've got my clips on the way and wanted to get the pliers so they arrive around the same time.

I love my kam snap pliers. I do my paci clips with them.. and my bowholders, too! There is actually a tut on the kam snap website. It is what I do. As for size, I use 20s because that is all that I have - with 7/8 or 5/8 ribbon. I ordered 16s, but they were out of stock so I didn't get them.

When I sew my ribbon to make clips I double it up at the bottom for several inches. This allows you to put the snaps through two layers of ribbon (on both snaps). I have used size 16 and size 20 snaps, you just have to get the right tools. As far as getting it to go through both layers of ribbon, depending on the tool you just use the awl to poke the hole first. Easy peasy.

Aww thank you girls for replying so quickly!!

So you'd recommend that I double it over at the end instead of risking one layer of ribbon?

Any chance you could PM me Ashley with a vague idea on the steps you take to make your paci clips? If you don't want to then thats fine
