-Box of Clips (I found mine at Sally Beauty Supply - box of 100 for $5)
-Ribbon (3/8" works best for the clips I bought, but check your clips - it needs to be just a bit wider than your clip) - if you are doing this for fine haired children like mine, use the grossgrain ribbon with the ridges. If not, feel free to use anything at all!
-Hot glue gun
Seriously, how cute is this ribbon? It was all 50% off at Hobby Lobby the day I went so each spool was only $1.
Step 1: Cut about an 8 inch piece of ribbon. This gives you a little room to play. Basically, you are going to wrap the ribbon from the inside of the bottom of the clip, around the bottom of the clip, into the squeeze part of the clip, around the top of the clip, and around the inside of the top of the clip. You are just wrapping the entire clip with ribbon. I do a dry run first, and then start gluing. A little bit of hot glue goes a LONG way. Apply your glue to the ribbon because it won't stick if you apply it to the metal. Here is how I start . . .
These make great gifts! If you know me and are having a baby girl this year, you'll be getting some of these!
