Ribbon Of your choice (I LOVE sheer-not wire ribbon and make sure the ribbon is wide enough to cover the clippie)
9/4 mm sized buttons of your choice (they need to be this size and no smaller)
Fray Block (at Walmart in the sewing notions aisle)
Hot Glue Gun
These aren't all "actual" steps. There's maybe about 5 real steps to making these ;)
Take and fold the ribbon with cut ends meeting. Hot glue the ends together as shown in picture.
Do this to all the strips.
Set flower aside. Take ribbon color of your choice (this will cover the alligator clip) and measure out 4 1/4 inches and cut. Place hot glue on one end of ribbon and place the glued side UNDERNEATH the INSIDE of the TOP piece of the clippie. Make sure it's centered.
Place glue on the top of the alligator clip and place ribbon over the top. Place a small amount of glue under the clippie but only the top half. SEE PICTURE IN NEXT STEP
