Anything Goes- Guest Designer on Craftin Desert Divas Blog

I am posting today as a guest designer for Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party hosted by Tara of Craftin Desert Divas! Every other Monday will mark the beginning of a new semi-weekly linky party and you could win fabulous prizes!!

This linky party theme is Anything Goes. The sponsors are KaDoodle Bug Designs - $15 giftcard, Robin's Nest - $10 giftcard, Cardz TV- Stamp set of choice. The more you link up, the better chance you have to win. Visit Craftin Desert Divas for all the rules and to play along.

Wasn't really sure what I wanted to do at first.  But then I remember that I had received a new order from CTMH and it had the New Base and Bling Hair Clips(Z1875).

So that is what I'm going to show you.  I did a little photo tutorial to show you how to make the flowers. This first photo will show you the finished product sitting next to the base.

So, what I did was I chose my fabric, I used the blue panel from the Sarita textile package(Z1885).  I made a 2" circle template, which I then traced onto the back of the fabric with a black ink pen.  I cut out 9 fabric circles.

I used the largest circle adhesive dot  from the sheet, there are 4 coordinating sizes to match all the jewellery(Z1903).

Once all my fabric circles were cut out I took the top piece off the adhesive which is adhered to the hair clip, and I started by folding 1 of the 9 circles and placing it on the base. You fold the circle in half, and then half again, and then I folded each piece back onto itself.  I did this 8 times, as it will hold 8 folded pieces around the circle, and then put the last one in the centre to give it a fuller flower.

I put each piece on as I finished folding it.  You should have a great flower hair clip, I wanted mine fuller, so for this I needed a glue gun, and I popped a small glob of hot glue in the centre, and placed my ninth piece in place.  I then gently separated the folds just a little to fill in the empty spaces.
Finally, it is ready to be modelled.  So I grabbed my littlest model and tada, we have a Sarita Hair Clip.

Hope you will Craft It Up & Link It Up!!!
