Rose Bud Headband

This is a simple, done in less than 10 minutes mini rosebud headband made using fabric tape: 
I received this from Wholeport and I must say it is so fun and beautiful.  It is basically like a crocheted trim with a sticky tape backing on it.  You could use it on cards, or on scrapbook pages.  I created mini roses with mine.  I love the finished product.

For these you will need the fabric tape, a piece of elastic large enough to fit comfortably around the head of the person you are making it for, and a piece of felt (oh and hot glue).
Cut a length of the fabric tape.  There is no right or wrong length-just remember the longer the piece the bigger the rosebud.
Peel off the backing and begin rolling the fabric tape along it's sticky side (this means the rosebud will hold together on it's own-saving you many burned fingers from hot glue)
When you have completed the rosebud, put a dab of hot glue on the bottom and glue it to a piece of felt.  Then trim the felt to the same size as the bud.
I used three flowers per headband
Now run a small line of hot glue down the middle of each flower and glue to the elastic.  Hold in place for a few seconds.  Once all the flowers on the headband put a small dab of glue between them to hold them together.
There you have it.  Done in 10 mins or less.
And now for my lovely model (who happens to be sitting in a cardboard box).
Simple and beautiful (and yes I know red doesn't go with pink).
Pin It!
