As you know, I am a paid consultant for Brother but all ideas and opinions are my own. I always share that as I believe 100% in total transparency and just in case this is the first post of mine you’ve seen. ANYHOW! I have a super fun mega exciting project today that I’m thrilled with!
My goal: Create a shiny seashell hair clip full of treasure and fun with supplies I’ve got on hand. To do this I started with extra thick (3mm) firm craft felt, my ScanNCutDX and its built in designs, and some sparkly vinyl that is iron-on.
Here is a link to the YouTube tutorial, if you’d like to watch my exact process.
Basically, it goes like this:
- Select pattern, cut out desired size from felt. Then turn on “half cut” and cut vinyl, weed vinyl, and of course iron it onto your felt base.
- Hot glue to barrette
- Add sparkle
The ScanNCutDX is fabulous for this because it will totally auto-cut and cut the correct thicknesses – no testing needed!
For my seashell I used a mix of rhinestones, pearls, embellishments and beads. I LOVE the results and know this will make an awesome accessory for a themed outfit! A project like this is so simple and fun to do, and can add a lot to a costume or just to everyday wear.
