Mummy Alligator Clip

I have always wanted to make a Mummy Clip not only for my girls but also for craft shows.

I found my inspiration on Pinterest, CLICK HERE to see.

I made a holder for these bows, would you like to see them CLICK HERE.

 I used a circle die from my stash and some white felt from my local craft store to cut out a bunch of about 2 inch in dieameter circles using my Big Shot tool.

You will need two per mummy, one for the front and one for the back.
 I lined a 1.75 inch Alligator Clip with some White 3/8 inch Gross Grain ribbon.

If you need help on how to line an Alligator Clip CLICK HERE.

I Hot Glued some Google Eyes in the center.
 These are just about 3 inches long, I did not heat seal the edges because they will be sealed in the inside by putting on the second white felt circle on top.

I used 6-7 3 inch strips on each mummy face.

One at a time a line of glue then the 3 inch strip.
 Turn over and add a little dab of Hot Glue to each end and fold over.
 I used some last year pre made ribbon bows that have some foam on the back, it is easy to pull off.

I Hot Glued them onto the mummy face.
 All done, Hot Glue the other felt circle on top.

Run your glue just shy of the edge so that it will not ooze out when you press the other felt circle on top.
The back, I choose the circle die based on the size of the Alligator Clip, it is pretty much covered by the mummy face.
