  • Alligator Clips
  • Glue Gun or Fabri-tac
  • 3/8 inch red grosgrain (or any other color you want to use to line the clippie) – 3 ¼ inches
  • ¼ inch black grosgrain cut to the following lengths:
    • 3 ¾ inches
    • 3 inches
    • 2 ¼ inches
    • 2 inches – 2 pieces
    • 1 ½ inches – 2 pieces
  • If making a girl mouse, you'll need materials to form a tiny bow for the head.

Step-by-Step Instructions

  • Line your alligator clip with whatever color ribbon you'd like to be your background.

  • Glue each of the black grosgrain pieces into circles.

  • Glue the 3 ¾, 3 and 2 ¼ inch pieces together to form one circle with 2 inside circles. It will look like this.

  • Glue one 2 inch piece and one 1 ½ inch piece together to form one ear and do it again to form the other ear. They will look like this.
  • Glue the ears to the head.

  • Glue the head to the clippie – place the glue along the top edge across the ears.

  • The finished clippie will look like this.

  • If you'd like to make a girl mouse then add a small bow to one side of the head like this


I used a glue gun on one and fabri-tac on the other. I found the fabri-tac made for a cleaner look, but I had to hold the pieces together to allow them to set before I could move on. I basically used alligator clips to hold them together while I did other work. By the time I finished gluing and clipping, the first pieces were set and I could move on. If you are neat and tidy with hot glue then that would be the faster choice. If you're like me and make a mess with hot glue, fabri-tac would be a cleaner solution.

Hope everyone enjoys!
