I started by making these flowers out of my favorite fabric collection EVER, Nicey Jane by Heather Bailey. After the flowers were done, I though there's no way they are just going to be embellishments on a card, sticking there for all eternity.. they're way to cute for that! So I decided to turn them into hair clips by gluing a hair clip, that I covered in ribbon, on the back.
But I still had a card to make, so instead of gluing (the horror!) these little cuties to the card, I added this extra strip of scrap fabric, only gluing down the ends. Oh how I love every single fabric in that collection!
I clipped the little flowers onto the piece of fabric....
There! I have my card done, but those flowers come off and can be clipped in your hair, on your headband, or even in your jacket's button hole...like a brooch, but not... This card and gift in one is perfect for girls of all ages. I would totally wear those flowers in my hair, and they would look adorable in my 3yr olds hair too (if she had any left... she gave herself a hair cut a few days ago and is now sporting a mullet a la Joe Dirt...)
This whole thing started with a bit of inspiration I got from The Shabby Tea Room for their buttons and bows challenge
(P.S. I made the flowers with PTI's Beautiful Blooms#1 dies, I used 8 fabric flowers to create one big fluffly one. It took a lot of die cutting, folding, and burning my fingers with hot glue.)
I also linked this card to Someday Crafts for their Whatever Goes Wednesday.
