PostSubject: Making Mini Clippies   Thu Jan 28, 2010 1:16 am

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had made any of these style clips http://www.facebook.com/photo.php?pid=4585229&id=22470571423 with 5/8 and whether they look to chunky? I have a stack of 5/8 sitting here calling to be made up but have to stick to what sells for me.

Personally I don't think they would be too bad with it only being a minimal width increase from my regular 3/8 ribbons but am not convinced.

Love to hear and see your suggestions or photos

Thanks
Leigh

Hi Leigh,

I have made them like you explain. If you gather them a little in the centre they look adorable. No photos as I sold them all and have not made any for awhile. I think they are cute.

So do they end up looking a bit like this?


I'm thinking of use the Fabernmix ribbons for this style, don't want to loose to much of the detail iykwim.

Hi Leigh,

I make some the exact same way you have made these with the 3/8 out of the 5/8 ribbon I just make them

a little longer and they seam to sell well.

That looks great. I like to make mine a bit longer to hide the clip but that is a personal thing.

Well done!

I've made a couple. Here are the ones from my site that seem to go well. I just attach them to a lined alligator clip or small french barrette.

The ones pictured above I used to sell heaps of at the markets ( I would say my best seller when I used to do markets) , they were very popular with the teenagers especially ones with printed ribbons
