Trendy Flower and Leaf Garland Headband Tutorial

With garland headpieces so on trend, I thought I would use Bitty Posies Etched Dies from Happy Grams #4 Collection by Tammy Tutterow to try and create one. I can honestly say that I was very happy with the results. The versatility and possibilities of this set makes it a “must have”. Wait until you see how easy it is to make this project.

Die-cut approximately 35 Sprigs from various shades of green paper, using Bitty Posies Etched Dies and Platinum or Platinum 6 Machine.

Trendy Flower and Leaf Garland Headband Tutorial: Step 1

Attach two pieces of floral wire together to make headband form, overlapping by several inches. (It will take two pieces of the wire to make it long enough to go around the head.) Measure headband to fit size of head plus 2 inches and trim off excess.
