FWF Grunge Paper Rose Headbands



I've had sheets of grungepaper FOREVER, I mean FOREVER! LOL And finally worked up the nerve to create these 3d flowers. I have to say I love making them. Getting my hands all inky and dirty makes me feel like a true artist. As I sat down yesterday to make a card, my girls interrupted me and begged for me to make good on my promise to create them grungepaper flower headbands! So...who am I to say no...esp when they are on spring break, right?! I used distress inks in Fired Brick and Shabby Shutters and also my ippity stamps Dots for Sure and Music of My Heart. I added a small brad to the center of the red flower. I spritzed them both with glimmer mist. They were so fun and easy to make - I will definately be making more. I'd like a thicker headband I think next time to attach them to. I used Helmar 450 Quick Dry glue for the entire project. This stuff is amazing! I love how it gives you just enough drying time to make a adjustments to placement and then a few seconds of pinching time and that isn't going anywhere! Even for gluing on such a small surface area like this skinny headband I was impressed.

Here is a snippet of the March KOTM - isn't it fabulous? Gosh, I really need to get on board with this. How fun would it be to get new rubber in the mail every single month?!
