Digi Scrap Headband
I have recently started dabbling in the world of digital scrapbooking. It was only a matter of time before I made the leap into a hybrid project - AKA printing up digital scrapbooking images and making something tangible with them. This week I did it twice. I'm gonna show you how to make a headband today for I Love to Create and if you jump over to Craft Zine I'll show you how to make a feather hair clip.
Braided Digital Kit by Kitschy Digitals
Fabric Fusion Glue
Piece of Cardboard
The first thing you need to do is decide on which digi scrap item you want to work with. I have a bit of a craft crush on Danielle Thompson and her line of digi scrap goodies called Kitschy Digitals so I went with her Braided Digital Kit.
Using fabric that goes through your printer by June Tailor I printed up a braided rosette and braided strip for my headband. Next I cut my images out. Using a scalloped edge I also cut out a piece of green felt.
The next thing I needed to do was to stuff my braided rosette. I cut out a circle of cotton fabric that was the same size as the digi scrap rosette. I also cut out a circle of cardboard slightly smaller than the circles of fabric. Putting like sides of fabric to like sides I started stitching around the edges of the circle with embroidery thread. When the circle was about half way sewn up I inserted my cardboard circle to act as a flat base for my rosette. I continued stitching up the hole in my circle a little more and when there was only a small hole left I filled the little puff with stuffing. Once I had my desired amount of puff I finished stitching everything shut.
Now you should have all of your pieces. The first thing I did was glue my green felt to the headband using Fabric Fusion Glue. Once that was in place I glued my digi scrap braid on top of the felt. All that was left to do was use more Fabric Fusion Glue and attach my braided rosette.
I held everything in place with clothes pins while the glue dried.
My new headband is ready to roll. I love that I can use all these fun graphics in my digital scrapbooking designs and in my wardrobe. More bang for your buck right!
Have you done any fun hybrid projects with digital scrapbooking goodies? I'd love to hear about it and get inspired.
