The May Challenge for the Blogging Business Artisans Team is from Sharla of Beaded Tail.
The challenge was to make something with a flower theme -- May flowers.
I will be visiting two of my grandchildren in New Hampshire in August. While I am there, we will celebrate Madeline’s 9th birthday. My three East Coast “big kids” will all be there – a mini-reunion.
Madeline’s favorite color is pink, so I decided to make her a pink rick rack rose hair clip for her curly blonde hair.
I found this rick rack flower tutorial on the Oh For Sweetness Sake blog. Thanks to Jesselle’s great step-by-step instructions, I was able to create a cute little hair accessory. I used Roxanne's Glue-Baste-It instead of a hot glue gun. I had some difficulty turning back the “petals,” possibly due to having fat old fingers – but if there was polyester in the rick rack, that would also make it more difficult to shape the flower. On my next attempt, I may look for cotton rick rack, and use tweezers to help the rose bloom.
