Hello there! Michelle Lanning here to share with you another fun tutorial that is super simple and fun to make! Having a daughter means having a lot of hair accessories lying around the house, not to be found when they are needed. Well through browsing many blogs I found one idea that is perfect for all the headbands that my daughter has accumulated. Here are the supplies you will need.
- Empty Oatmeal Container
- Paper Doll Pattern Paper
- Paper Doll Stickers
- Paper Doll Die Cuts
- Border Punch
Isn't it cute?! My daughter loves it! She especially likes the teddy bear and bunny. And I love that it holds all her favorite headbands of the week in one place. So here goes the easy tutorial.
First, you'll need two pieces of pattern paper that are of the same pattern. One piece isn't big enough to cover the entire container. If you don't have two pieces that are the same, you can cut two different sheets into strips and make a pattern.
I cut the "Addi" pieces into the following sizes:
Sheet 1: 12" x 9.5"
Sheet 2: 12" x 5.5"
I tried as best as I could to match the seams in the back. I then added some decorative borders to both the top and bottom of the container. I used the reverse side of the "Addi" paper as well the "Allie" sheets.
For the top of the container, I roughly cut out a circle to cover the printed lid. I also cut a strip of kraft paper roughly about 11" x 1.5". I stapled the strip to the lid with my mini stapler. It holds pretty well.
This is what it looks like put together:
For the rainbow, I used the top of the container and traced a semi-circle on various sheets of the Paper Doll collection. To adhere it, I used some liquid glue and let it set before I went on to the next step.
Next, I added grass to the outer border of the top. After you punch the grass out and fold a piece under to adhere it, make sure to make small snips in the paper so it will bend easier.
All that is left is to decorate to your heart's content. I used both the chipboard pieces and the die-cut stickers. For the flowers, I hand cut them from the Olivia Grace paper.
And there you have it! A fun way to store headbands!
