Festive Hair Flair: Paper Flower Hair Clip Tutorial

Whether it's Cinco de Mayo or any other festive time, add a little flair to your hair with one of these paper flowers:


Supplies:

Glue Dots®
cardstock
circle punches (or circular objects to trace)
button
needle
thread
hair clip

(Directions are for one hair clip.)

Step 1: Make circles: 5 large (3.25" diameter) and 4 small (2" diameter).


Step 2: Fold four of the large circles in half, twice. Add a Glue Dot® to the inside of each circle to keep them folded. Adhere a Glue Dot® to the back of each folded circle and attach to the large circle that is not folded.


Step 3: Repeat the folding process with the four small circles and use Glue Dots® to adhere them to the large folded circles.


Step 4: Attach the button to the center of the paper flower using a needle and thread and a Micro Glue Dot® to secure it in place.


Step 5: Add the hair clip to the back of the flower using Glue Lines®.


Now your hair is ready for a fiesta! (Or a Cabbage Patch Doll's hair since two-year-olds can't sit still for an up-close photo.)


And here I am with my paper flower hair clip and new Glue Dots Dottess apron:


If you're wondering if I had fun during my photo shoot. YES! Of course! It's not often that I curl my hair, put a clip in it, wear an apron and carry a tray of Glue Dots.
