Up, Up and Away Clip
My friend Vickie asked me a while back to make her some hair clips for her daughter's crazy, beautiful hair. It was right around the time of the last PTI blog hop and I had just gotten PaperTreyInk's Up, Up and Away stamp set and coordinating dies and was itching to use them. The theme was Fabulous Felt and I decided to use shrink plastic to make a "charm" for the first hair clip, so first I sanded the shrink plastic, then used the balloon die to cut it out and stamped the balloon with black ink onto the plastic. I used Copics to color in the segments and then heated the charm with my heat gun until it was shrunken down to size. Three coordinating circles of felt (cut with my Sizzix with the SU! circle die) glued onto the alligator clip was the perfect simple accompaniment. I think it turned out really cute! I didn't end up submitting it for the hop because I haven't yet (operative word: YET) purchased any of PTIs wool felt and didn't know if it had to be their felt or not for the hop, so here it is, just on my regular blog at a random time. LOL! :)
Thanks for looking and for any comments!
