Before you begin you will need some supplies:
I received feedback that its hard to find alligator clips and ribbon without buying in bulk. Therefore, I sell kits for $5 + shipping with 5 alligator clips, and 5 pre-cut ribbons both 3/8" and 7/8" in different patterns You can email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to purchase a kit. To select the ribbon you would like, just browse the www.simplycouture.etsy.com website. I have the ribbon for nearly every bow on the site. Please just reference the ribbon you would like included in the email. For your protection I will set up an special order in my Etsy store and you can purchase your kit with no worries.
Measure out 4 inches of your 3/8" ribbon. Press the ends of the clip together and insert the ribbon between the prongs right to the back. Close the clip.
