Make a Hair Clip Cut a length of grosgrain ribbon 12cm (4 7/8) long. Use your heat sealer or lighter to seal the ends of each piece. Set up your glue gun and allow it time to heat up. Dont forget to lay down a work mat. Open the clip and run some glue along the underside of the top jaw of the clip. Slide your ribbon into the open space between the jaws and attach it to the glued area. (This step is seen below in the top left image, where the clip is upside-down. This gives you a better view of where to place the ribbon. With your clip facing up, run a length of glue across the top of the clip right to the end of the jaw. Fold your ribbon back over the top and gently smooth it across the top jaw using your thumb. Place a small dab of glue on both ends of the inside of the jaws at the back. Be careful not to get any glue near the spring though, or youll have a clip that wont close properly. Gently push the ribbon into the space at the back. Lastly put a small dollop of glue on the underside of the clip, just over the space where the circular hole is. Fold the remaining length of ribbon over and press it down gently on the glue to secure.
