The current challenge at the Lollipop Ladies is from this picture with the added challenge of off the page.
I have made this little hair clip using X Cut Scallop circle dies, felt and alligator clip I purchased from an online store. Modeled by my youngest daughter.
I have followed the tutorial by Jen McDermott which can be found here http://lawnscaping.blogspot.com.au/2013/10/video-tutorial-fabric-flower-with-lawn.html
I found this to be really easy to follow. I did try the fabric but I only had very thick interfacing and my Epic 6 had a little trouble cutting it smoothly plus it made the back of the fabric white which I didn’t like the appearance of. So I changed to felt which was really easy to work with.
I made a small gift tag with a small slit in it. I used. MFT Dienamics Traditional Tags Stax, PTI Tremendous Treats Birthday sentiment stamped in PTI Dark Chocolate ink (for the chocolate chips in the cookie!), scrap white and kraft cardstock. Finished off with some white ribbon and a small piece of twine.
I attached to the outside of her present with double sided tape. I wrapped the card inside with the present.
I am a couple of days late with this gift and card for the youngest daughter of one of my oldest friends and neighbour! I think she will be happy when she opens it to find a Barbie make your own nail polish kit – my 3 girls all want one now – yes MIss 8 & Miss 13 and Miss 17!
Tonight we are off to the Graduation dinner of Miss 17.
Most of my crafting this week has been her dress, clutch and dance costumes – dress and clutch finished, dance costumes almost there.
If you are in NSW fire area – stay safe.
Thanks for popping by
