Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop: Week 3 - Beauty Bloom Headband and Clips

It's Thursday, and that means it's time for the Sizzix Triple Play Blog Hop! This week, we are using a flower die called Beauty Bloom by Brenda Pinnick. I love this one because it has four shapes in one die that allows all kinds of possiblities for making flowers. Now on to my project!



I created this cute headband by cutting out multiple layers of the three petal flower with two colors of tissue paper, stacking them on a brad and "fluffing" them with my fingers. Next, I cut the large individual petal and the larger daisy in glittered paper and in Brenda's new line of fabrics from Henry Glass & Co. called Couluer Vie. I inserted these petals randomly between the layers of tissue to make the flower pop.



I finished the flower off with a center of pearls and some glittered "leaves" die cut with the large individual petals from National Non-Wovens Woolfelt. This is the first time I have used their felt and let me tell you that it is as soft as butter. I wrapped the plain headband in green ribbon and attached the flower and leaves.



Next I created a set of hair clips using the large daisy flower and the same process with the tissue paper, glittered paper, fabric and felt.



Here is a close up shot so you can see the pearl detail in the center of the flower. I think that my bear Macy looks like she is ready for a party!
