There are a lot of girls in this house and we are all fond of pretty things, particularly pretty hair things. I don't know if you've noticed but pretty hair things are expensive. The local discount store wants $3 - $5 a piece for these little treats. Since most hair clips around here are either dissassembled by Puddin' or end up in The Blitz' mouth, I am loath to spend that much; might as well throw the money directly in the trash and save a step!
Yesterday my number one crafter, Pepper, asked for a stop at the fabric store. Since we only had The Captain in tow, I acquiesced. I found plain hair clips for 10 cents a piece and grabbed some super-cheap self adhesive ribbon, and took flowers from the sale bins. Last night Pepper and I sat down in front of t.v. and created these guys for about $0.15 each. I figure the whole tray cost less than $2.50.
Please consider this my May Day offering since for the first time in my life I forgot to commemorate May Day by leaving flowers anonymously on my neighbors' doorsteps. Oopsie.
