Baby Headband

Supplies & Tools needed for this project:
Wide Headband
Silk Flower - 1
Sizzix Big Shot Die cutting machine
QuicKutz die (REV-0316-S)
1” Bottle Cap
1” Acrylic Cabochon
1” Circle Punch
Judikins Diamond Glaze
 Nostalgic Image - 1
Hi-Temp Glue Gun
Purple Felt

Step 1
Take your Sizzix Big Shot die cut machine, QuicKutz die (REV-0316-S), purple felt and cut 2 (middle size flowers).  Glue (1) purple felt flower to the inside of the headband. 
Step 2

Then, take apart the silk flower.  While taking apart the flower, place the petals on top of each other in the order that you removed them.  I do this so I remember how to put it back together again.  Glue each petal starting from the bottom to the top.   The reason you are putting hot glue on each of the pieces is so it will stay together.  Gluing the pieces together keeps the flower from looking “floppy”.

 Step 3

Then, cut the nostalgic image with the 1” circle punch and glue to the inside of the bottle cap.   Next, add a few drops of diamond glaze in the cap.  If bubbles come out of the bottle, just pop them using the wood stirrer.  Then, place the 1” Acrylic cabochons on top of your image and let dry. 

Step 4
Then, add hot glue to the back of the bottle cap and place it in the center of the silk flower.  Adhere the silk flower to the remaining felt flower.  Take the remaining felt flower and glue to the outside of the headband on top of the existing felt flower.
