Wish Crown by Melissa Phillips

Wish Crown by Melissa Phillips

Supplies:

Autumn Press Fall Fashion by Studio Calico

Instructions:

  1. For my birthday crown I used the template found at:
    http://www.skiptomylou.org/wp-content/uploads/2009/02/birthdaycrown.pdf.
  2. Cut out template and trace it onto desired paper. Cut out and lightly ink the edges to distress.
  3. Cut a 2" strip of coordinating paper and adhere it to the bottom of the crown. Ink the edges once again to distress.
  4. Adhere cream trim across the base of the crown and wide pink trim across the center of the crown.
  5. Gather and adhere tissue trim scraps around the backside of the flower to add another layer.
  6. Trim small green leaves from the Mountain Lilly collection and adhere them to the larger flower.
  7. Adhere completed flower to the front of the crown leaving the point of the crown exposed.
  8. Adhere a strip of green ribbon across the center of the crown and attach two green bows towards the ends of the crown.
  9. Attach glittered gold chipboard letters across the center of the crown.
  10. Paint a large chipboard button with cream acrylic paint, sand the edges to distress, and coat with glitter. Adhere to the top point on the crown and top with a cream button.
  11. Adhere two smaller cream buttons to the lower points on the crown with a cream adhesive pearl at the tip.
  12. Adhere two cream adhesive pearls on the lowest points of the crown.
  13. Attach a strip of plain cardstock across the back of the crown to make it larger or smaller depending on the size of the birthday girl's head.
