Flirtatious Headband

I am so excited to share my latest obsession with you.  I know many of you don't give a flip about hairbow and headbands, but for some reason, I am LOVING them right now and loving it even more that I can make it with Stampin' Up! Fabric!  It's a great way to share our company with people who aren't interested in our paper/ink/stamp product lines.

headband to cover, hot glue gun, lighter to heat seal ribbon

To Make Fabric Flower: 
Cut 1 circle from Circles#2 die (larger one)
Cut 7 circles from the clear circle die
On each larger circle put a dot of hot glue in the middle and fold circle in half.  Put another dot of hot glue in the middle of the fold and fold it again.  So, basically you have a circle folded in quarters.
Take your smaller circle and put a big dot of hot glue in the center and put 4 folded quarter circles on top, meeting in the middle.  Then, put another dot of glue in the middle of that and layer the last 3 circles on top.  Fluff it up and hot glue it onto the covered headband.  I suggest looking in a mirror to place the flower so you don't look like a goof :)  I have worn this headband out in public and don't feel like a total goob.  I'm bringing the headband back for women!
