Ribbon Covered Snap Clips

Ribbon Covered Snap Clips - {The Ribbon Retreat Blog}

As you all know, I am not one loves to wear hair accessories. But I am trying to do better! And I admit, it’s getting more fun.

I normally pull my bangs back with bobby pins; how boring is that? I decided to spruce things up a bit, but not too much, and I went searching for something better than bobby pins.

I was looking around The Ribbon Retreat and found snap clips!
I love the rectangular ones.

I used to wear these back in middle school, so it’s been a LONG time. I forgot that these could be used as hair accessories.

Since wearing snap clips plain reminds me of middle school, what a fun awkward time! 🙂, I needed to fancy them up a bit. The Ribbon Retreat has free Ribbon Covered Snap Clip Instructions on the website, or you can find them in your TOTT Hair Bow Instructions as well.

I will be wearing these plain, but you can add bows, flowers, buttons, etc. to give them a little more character.

I love how they turned out and they are perfect for that little “extra” I needed.


1/4″ Ribbon – I used Solid Grosgrain and Double-Faced Satin – 14″-15″ for each snap clip
Snap Clip – 50 mm (My hair is so thin, I will get some smaller ones next time)

    How do you cover the rectangular snap clips without weaving 1/4 inch ribbon, so that you can’t see the bottom of the snap clip. Any tips? 3/8″ is too small and 5/8″ is too big.

      Rebeca, I am not exactly sure what you are describing. I’ve only made these with 1/4″ ribbon. Do you have a picture example of what you’re trying to do? I can ask around once I know exactly what you’re trying to make. Thanks! – Shirley 🙂
