Well, I wasn't lying. It had me at hello. I also knew as soon as I bought it I wanted to use it for more then just papercrafting. Sarah over at Pink Cricut posted a video a few months ago that showed her making headbands, clips and rings for her daughter. I loved it, but since I don't have children (yet), I knew I needed to expand on that idea and make accessories for adults to wear as well.
I love lollipop flowers. They're easy to make, impossible to screw up, and they come out adorable every single time. I couldn't think of a better vintage looking headband then a lollipop flower headband, so I set to work creating one.
Don't you just LOVE IT!!!! I've got to share the recipe with you, because it is just too easy for you NOT to try it for yourself!
- Imaginisce i-Top Tool
- Small Twist Daddies
- Imaginisce Headbands
- Satin Fabric
- Spellbinder Nestabilities- Standard Circles
- Lighter or candle
- Wide Ribbon
- Hotfix Crystals
I cut the circles out of the poly satin fabric using my Nestabilities and my Cuttlebug. I know a lot of people make lollipop flowers using the Sizzix Circles #2 Die, or you can also cut them freehand. I burned the edges of each circle with a lighter and then glued them all together with hot glue. I used my Crop-A-Dile to punch a hole in the flower and then secured it to the headband using a Twist Daddy.
I made a short tutorial showing you how it's done:
The BEST part of this headband is I can make the flowers in a bunch of different colors, then simply pop them on the twist daddy and I have a headband that will coordinate with almost any outfit!
