Here is a step-by-step photo tutorial on how I made the little flowers.
For the flowers I used the smallest and the medium sized die from the Flower set 3.
For each flower I die cut two flower shapes with the same die.
I used my cuttlebug to die cut the flower shapes, you can easily die cut 4 layers of foam at once.
Then I hold one flower shape to the pre-heated iron (2 dots heated) for a few seconds.
With a modelling tool I press the flower shape in a sponge.
I did the same with the second flower shape but this time I turned the warm shape the other way before pressing it into the sponge. It gets a different shape this way.
To make the center of the flower I put a few stamens between a piece of flower wire.
Then I pierce this through the two flowers.
I made 3 larger flowers and about 17 smaller ones in 3 colors, white, red and dark pink. For the leaves I used a leave die and olive green foam.
Before gluing the flowers and leaves on the head band I wrapped white florist tape around the band, but you can also use ribbon for that.
I'm going to give this hairband to my neighbor girl who is 4 years old, she will look cute with it.
Thanks for stopping by today at the 14 craft bar blog.
