Does anyone know what kind of clip I would use to make a clip-on tie? Thanks in advance!

PS I really don't want to use snaps ... I just want to put a clip behind the knot, not have straps that snap/hook/velcro/connect.

1. buy one and cut off the tie to use the clip (I find clip on ties at the thrift store for a quarter)
2. use a hair clip of some sort, I've done this before and it worked great.

thank you... i'm interested in making many of them to sell, so buying / cutting off the clip isn't a practical solution. hair clip might work... any other ideas?

I bought some from The Ribbon Retreat last week.  They have two sizes, small & junior.

I'm putting a tutorial up on my blog tomorrow if you need help figuring out how to use it, they don't come with instructions.
