Clear & Simple Stamps: Group Project

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Hey there!  It's a fun day around these parts.  It's Group Project day with Clear & Simple Stamps.  This month the design team and I were challenged to create a card or 3D item using fabric.  How fun!  This combines two of my favorite hobbies.

So, I used this month's SOTM, On the Mend II and some fabric to create two hair accessories any little girl would be happy to wear.   

Here's the set.  It's a head band and a barrette that is clipped to a gift tag.
The tag was created out of Kraft Like a Rockstar card stock with some patterned paper.  I created the faux stitching using a ruler and a black sharpie.  I punched two holes in the center of the tag and that's how the barrette is attached to the tag.
This was my daughter's headband.  It was already covered in pink ribbon.  I simply tore off the tacky flower that came on it and replaced it with these three fabric flowers that I made.
And here's my little girl modeling her new headband.  She absolutely loved it.
About the flowers.  They are super simple to make.  All you need is some thin strips of fabric and a glue gun.  I started by tying a knot in the end of a fabric strip and then gluing that knot to a little circle of card stock or felt (both work fine).  From there, all you do is twist the fabric and wrap it around the knot, gluing here and there to keep the fabric attached to the felt base.  When your flower is big enough, simply wrap the fabric around the back and glue it down.  Once your flower is finished, hot glue it to whatever your heart desires.  


Make sure you check out the rest of the design team and their fabric creations: Kim Howard, Viola Mahr, Lori Tecler, Ryann Salamon, Cristina Kowalczyk, Tiffany Johnson, and Tracy Schultz.  


Have a great day!

Dana, these are gorgeous! :) Thanks for the comments on my blog...I am slowly getting back into crafting. Just got a divorce from my husband of 8.5 years (HE didn't want to be married anymore...don't get me started!) and the last six months have been a little crazy. The last thing I felt like doing was crafting, but I am feeling the creativity again and don't feel like getting rid of all of my supplies anymore, so that's good! Anyway, TMI I am sure, but thanks again! :)
