First let me begin by sharing with you that #1 I am new to the hair obsessed club and still learning from my "Hair Heroes" and #2 I am a working mom (who by the way is NOT a morning person!!!) I am finding that practice makes perfect better. Meanwhile my girls and I are enjoying our time together and we invite you to join us on our journey. Sometimes we do fancy and sometimes we flop but for us it's the process.

How to Create your own Flower Clip!

After visiting my first hair blogs I noticed right away that the perfect hair do often only looks complete with the perfect hair accessory. I love to craft, although I haven't found the time to do it for a long time (long story). I had fun over the last two weeks purchasing ribbons and flowers from all sorts of places and then learning how to make some of my own frills!

Think garage sale, bargain bin, Salvation Army, old flower arrangements on top of your local craft store. The flower I use in this slide show came in a big bunch from Kmart for $3.00.

You would laugh if you saw my first attempt at making these. Fortunately they were all dismantled and I started over, using a better technique and better supplies. Here is a little tutorial that I'd like to share. I've had lots of practice as I been working on dozens of bows and flowers that will shortly become gifts for little girl friends. . . I hope this helps.

ah, ha! take apart the flower and glue it back together! that makes so much more sense to me. I've always worried about it coming apart. I bought some flowers to make a few of these for my daughter. Thanks!
