Easy No Sew Ribbon Head Band

Hey everyone,

Today I have a no-sew ribbon head band to share.

The supplies you will need:
Gray fold over elastic smaller than your ribbon (any color you like will work)
Hot glue gun
Hot glue stick(s)
button or something similar to put in the middle of your flower (optional)
grip shelf liner (optional for lining the inside of the ribbon to help it stay in place on the head)

Step 1.
Measure out your ribbon by putting it around the head it will be going on. Cut it a few inches shorter than the full amount to go around the head.

Step 2.
Measure your elastic by putting it with the ribbon and fitting it around the head. You will want to make it so that it has to stretch to fit around the head (so that it stays on).

Step 3. (optional)
Here is where you would make your flower. To make the flower take the ribbon and pleat it in a circle while adding hot glue to the center to hold it down. Continue this until the circle is complete. Once the circle is finished hot glue a button (or item of your choice) to the center of your circle. Once your flower is finished hot glue it to the ribbon and place it wherever you want it (I choose to go off to the side slightly).

Step 4. (optional)
This is where you would line the inside of your ribbon with the grip shelf liner. Draw a line of hot glue on the inside of the ribbon a little at a time and push your liner down into the glue line. You will want to have the liner run the length of your ribbon.

Step 5.
Add a hot glue line at the end of the ribbon on the inside and place one end of your elastic on it. Than do the same to the other side of your ribbon and elastic making sure not to get it twisted.

Step 6.
Enjoy your new headband!

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!

Keep Calm & Love Harmony Layout

Hey everyone,

Today I have a 2 page baby girl layout to share. These are pics from Harmony when she was first born and had some visitors in the hospital.

All of the gold (title, hearts & dots) around the page are gold vinyl. All cut with my Silhouette Cameo. The pocket page inserts are from a few different collections. I don't even know for sure which but I believe 2 of them are project life and the other one I'm not sure about. I cut the strips of paper (gray, mint, & yellow) with a paper trimmer and added some yellow baby ribbon across the yellow paper strip on the bottom.

I am entering this layout into the following challenges:
Scrap Much - Gold Color challenge
Clique Kits - Anything goes
Let's Capture Our Memories - August color spot 
Challenge YOUrself - #21 Keep Calm and ______ (I am the one holding Harmony on the first page)

Thanks for stoppin' by and have a great day!
