My Favorite Things Blog HopHey everyone, welcome to My Favorite Things Blog Hop hosted by my friend Krystal. She is turning 37 on Monday, March 28th and she thought it would be fun to host a blog hop listing some of our favorite things! How fun!! She is over at http://krystalskreativity.blogspot.com/. This is where the blog hop begins, but if you came here from http://chick-n-scrap.blogspot.com/ then you are still in the right place.
I chose to display my flower hair clip tutorial as my favorite. I am a mommy of 3 girls and I just love making these for them. Its so easy and super cute!
-flower (artificial, on stem. You can get this from any craft store)
-3/8" ribbon cut to 4 1/2"
Start off by cutting the flower away from the stem
Now you are going to want to remove the center of the flower and take the rest of the stem out.
*just pull on it and wiggle the stem a little and it should pop out, if not then cut it as close to the flower as possible.
Next you need to glue the layers of the flower together (gluing around the center is best and some on the petals to keep the "shape")
As seen above you also glue the center piece in.
Now take your alligator clip...we are going to line it with the ribbon to make it look cute
Take the alligator clip and clip it onto the ribbon and hot glue around as you wrap the ribbon around it. You may need to practice a bit but this is what you should come out with.
Now take that cute flower and the alligator clip...
figure out where you want the clip to be placed at (I go in the middle on the big flowers)
add your glue and place the clip on it and hold it there a few seconds.
Make sure you dont go overboard on the glue and end up getting it over the sides of the clip because then you wont be able to open it ;)
Its super cute and I just love having them around for dressing the girls up and its a great photo prop :)
So this is the final product....
Now for a little fun!
