- Alligator clips (there are many different types. The one I am using is the single prong alligator clips. You can find it on my Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/listing/90571977/new-shop-for-2012-25-single-prong I also sell different types of alligator clips for lining ribbons.
- Fabri-Tac glue or a hot glue gun
- 3/8 ribbons You can buy ribbons at a craft store for $1.00. I purchased my ribbons at Micheal Art and Craft.
- Lighter for sealing the ends of the ribbons so they do not fray.
- Embellishments to put on the clippies (Optional)
Cut your ribbon to 4 1/2 inches. Use your lighter and seal the ends of the ribbon so it will not fray.
Pinch the alligator clip open and insert the ribbon. This will align the ribbon and alligator clip property.
Apply a small amount of glue along the length of the clip. If you put too much glue, it will get messy and will look like a big glob.
Once you glue is applied, quickly fold the ribbon on the top.
Add more glue between the pinch of the clip (top and bottom). And finally, add a dab of glue to the top part of the pinch and use the remaining ribbon to cover.
