Tutorial: Wear it on your lapel, wear it in your hair!

Back on this post I teased you

* 3/8" ribbon, enough to line your clip
* Electrical wire cover

Line the inside of your clip as usual. While the hot glue is cooling, put another big glob of glue on top of the clip and place your electrical wire tube perpendicular to the clip:

Finish lining your clip as usual:

And here it is "pinned" through the adapted alligator clip:

Pretty neat trick, don't you think?!
