Boutique Accessory Challenge - Papertey Ink

Hello Everyone,
Well...I was hoping to post a card for each one of the design team members from their 6 favorites each....I am working on Melissa Phillips right now but I am not sure I will be able to do one for each before the deadline...we will see how much crafting time and mojo I have!  Isn't it hard to choose what project to case when they are all so wonderful!

Today I whipped together a headband with flower for the Boutique Accessory Challenge and to give as a gift in just a few minutes time for Valentine's Day!  Happy Valentine's Day to everyone!

Here is what I created:

 It is a sweet little headband with a sewn together flower and a little floss bow.  The headbands are in my stash...they sell them 6 for a $1.00 at the dollar store near my home.  I keep a stash on hand for quick little gifts.  You can also see a view in my backyard which is so brown and dead looking at this time of year...though there are crocus trying very hard to bloom out in my front yard! Yeah!
 I wrapped the headband in some vintage trim I found in my stash, hot-gluing as I wrapped on the inside of each turn.  And then matched the felts as best I could to create the flower bloom which I sewed together with the blue floss...
I used the 1/14" scalloped circle limitless layers to create the backer to attach the flower.  The hot glue is between the cream layer and blue layer of this scalloped circle die.  All dies are from Papertrey Ink!

Thanks for taking a look!  The little girl I presented it to gave me the sweetest little hug! It made my day!  She is just 4 years old and I think she felt just like a little princess with a crown of flowers!  So sweet!



  1. WOW! That is quite the PRETTY headband, Jill! LOVE the flower on top and the trim around the band! You are AMAZING!

  2. Sooo pretty, and a hug like that is just precious! I love the flower and trim you made. I am thinking they would be awesome for Easter too!
    Thinking of you today, and said a prayer for you and your family.
