Handmade Headbands and Other Hair Accessories

Hello Everyone!!!

I hope you all are having a fantastic summer so far! For this month's design team project with The Piece by Piece, I decided to create some handmade headbands and hair accessories. When I received my design team package, I knew right away that I wanted to create some fun accessories for my little girl. The colors and fabric flowers are perfect for this beautiful season we are having.

Here are my handmade headbands and hair accessories (Products used are listed below each image):

Thank You Cards and Fun Favor Treat for School Kids

Hi Everyone,

I just wanted to quickly share my other creations recently. I've created two thank you cards for my preschool (not anymore) daughter's teachers and a treat for each of her school friends. So let me share the photos with you and I'll describe them individually.

Thank you cards for teachers
For these cards, I created them somewhat alike. I used a plain kraft cardstock as the base for the card, matted the patterned paper (I used Graphic45's ABC primer paper collection) with black cardstock. For embellishments, I added a heart banner die cut using my Lala land crafts die, made a rosette of the rosette die by Lala land crafts as well. The ruler was fuzzy cut from the paper collection and I added a chalkboard heart clip that I purchased from Michael's. And of course, I won't forget about the image I used. She's from Lala land crafts as well and it's the Backpack Marci stamp image which I copic colored and paper pieced.


For this fun kids' party favor or should I say, "End of School Year" party favor, I die cut a black cardstock with the Sizzix Tim Holtz Pillow Box die with a movers and shapers label die. I adhered a clear acrylic where the label hole is and wrote on the box with different chalk colors (you can use chalk markers rather than an actual chalk if you want your writing to look better). I also tied twine around to act as closure and added a tag.

I hope you will try this fun treat boxes and get inspirations from the handmade cards.
Until next time!
