Rose headband made using the Giant flower cartridge.

Hello, friends!

Today I have a great rose headband that I made using the Giant Flower cartridge. This would be great for a little girl to wear on Halloween, as a favor at a garden themed birthday party, or just around the house for dress up.  
I used coredinations cardstock.
The butterfly is made using the Art Nouveau cartridge.
Here is what it looks like on. My sweet little boy was patient for about 5 seconds.
As you can see, the 5 seconds are over. I so need a daughter. These pictures will definitely end up in the scrapbook ;-)
 Thanks for stopping by this week! See you next week!

Mel,
If you put that in an album, don't let anybody see it. His friends are going to call him a sissy! He sure didn't look happy. But the headband is neat, just not on your little "boy."

Yes, poor baby. What did you give him as a reward for being patient for 5 seconds and hanging in there a little longer? The flower looks huge. is this just the angle you took it at? Love the rose. Thanks

This has got to be the loveliest headband I've seen. This would be so cute for family Easter photos, little girls with these on would be similar the Anne Gettes photos! These would be great in a wedding or dress up. Options are endless. So lovely! Thxs for all you do.

Your gorgeous flower head band is a stunner - a nod to British aristocratic headwear! Super modeling job too!

KarenBeavers said...

Oh how pretty, my 5 year old daughter would LOVE that headband. Your son was such a good sport to be your model...he looks totally thrilled...I'm sure he'll be equally as thrilled when he looks at the layout ten years from now.

Love the headband, but the pictures of your model are priceless.

SHELLEE said...

These pics are priceless! I suspect it is a good thing that we can't really read his mind--we can imagnie what he is thinking however. This is a great project for my 2 nieces and a rainy day!

How did you attach it to the headband? Are the leaves from that cartridge?
