Happy Tuesday Readers!

The past few days I have been admiring all the fun and feminine flower hair clips out there, and I wanted one of my own. However, as most college students can attest to, when textbooks must be purchased, money is ... essentially non-existent. So, I decided to make my own!
What's The Plan, Stan?
Catch a sneak peak at my process and make some beautiful flower clips of your own
- Silk or other fabric flowers
- Metal hair clips or barretts
- Glue: I used E-6000, but I'm sure that a hot glue gun would do the trick
- First, select your flower. Silk/fabric flowers are made up of layers of petals held together with a plastic stamen (that would be the white plastic bit in the center of the flower below). Remove the stamen and take the layers apart.
