I got my hair cut (finally) back at the end of May. I love having the new shorter do. The only problem is that I used to keep my long, long hair up in a big clip to keep it out of my face. I hate having hair tickle me in the face. The old clips wouldn’t fit my new short hair. I just had to have something new. So I made some sweet little clips!
The clip there in the foreground I made in about 5 minutes. I used a flower punch (Stampin’ Up) to punch 2 thin chipboard shapes. I then punched 4 of the same flowers out of pattern paper (Basic Grey leftovers). Glue one piece of pattern paper to each side of each chipboard flower. Glue one flower on top of the other. Bend top petals up slightly. Add a puddle of glue to center, place pearls (Stampin’ Up) in center and sprinkle the whole thing with a bit of glitter to fill in the excess glue. I glued the finished flower to a small hair clip I already had on hand. Lovely!
The second clip was a recycled flower. I made the flower for a bookmark a couple of years ago. I never really liked it as a bookmark because it was just too bulky. But as a clip I love it!
I’ve got a few more flower clips in my future. I’ll share them with you when they are done.
