i have a bunch of those silver alligator clips for little girls hair. does anybody know what works to get ribbon to stay on these? i have tried glue dots and a hot glue gun and it still isn't staying stuck. what gives?
Shelly (momandteacher) does those. So does Madisonsmom. I don't know?

http://www.twopeasinabucket.com/shop/65481/ i'm just wondering, maybe if i sand the alligator clip so it has something to "stick" to, ya know? i really want to make some of these for my nieces...but they will only stay stuck for a little bit!
I've noticed w/ bows that are attached to clips like those, they are tied on w/ some thread. Sorry, no help here. How about crazy glue! LOL Also, if they are painted or finished the glue might not attach as well. What if you sanded the area first to get a better stick?!?!?!
lurker, but I make lots of these for my daughter, I have bought a few different kinds of craft glue, and other glues as well (gorilla glue and auto goop). Most have stayed on very well through lots of usage with the craft clue (Beacon Fabri-Tac, like in the pic here: http://www.girlythingsbows.com/grip_strip.html), but sometimes they start coming up on the bottom, so hence why I have tried so many glues. My best solution, use the craft glues, and when they start to come up around the edge you pinch, reglue them.
The gorilla glue leaves a residue that shows through most ribbons.
The auto goop is too messy, and I think it iwas residue-y too.
the hot glue is a pain (sometimes literally) and I hear comes undone easily, esp in cold)
I'm trying to remember what else I have tried. lol
But use this website, I found it in some of my searches and LOVE it, step by step insturctions for lots of cute bows!
