I remember making hair clips as a girl with my mom. It was the mid eighties and we were using cutwork doilies. These were cinched into big lacey bows and clipped above a single ponytail worn smack on the side of my head. Think Napolean Dynamite!
It's great to see the tradition continue. The Comstock women spent many summer afternoons around the table making hair clips for school, for gifts and just for fun.
These literally took about 2 minutes a piece. I know I've shown some of these pics before, but I never gave details for making them yourself.
To make yours, just cut a rectangle of our Adhesive Glitter Sheets slightly larger than your clip surface. Peel off the backing and stick it in place. Then trim around the clip with fine pointed scissors. Pick out your bling and adhere with a hot glue gun. That's it!
The above clip uses a 1" Gluber with baker's twine pressed into it. I made the tag by painting a glitter printed paper from our Simple Surface deck with watercolor. It's a great technique! If you create a tag with a punched out area, you can slip the clip right into it. I think it makes the clip more special come packaged in a cute way!
One more note, the clip in the above center is decked out with our Shimmer Trims velvet ribbon rather than glitter. It's sooooo pretty! I just hot glued it to the clip.
PS: Use hot, hot glue. The low-temp stuff will just peel off your clip later on.
PPS: I've said it before, but glitter cannot be rubbed off our Adhesive Glitter Sheets. They even pass the sweater test for military cards. So no worries about glitter dust in the hair with these!
