Easy DIY Headbands

I made myself a few new headbands that are reversable. I used ribbon – about 14 inches long – and I used elastic – about 6 inches long. I used black elastic, there is colored elastic available to purchase and match the ribbon.


The black headband is 2 pieces of glittery black ribbon sewn together. I sewed the top long edges together and then across the bottom. Then I inserted the elastic between the 2 pieces of ribbon and sewed the ends closed.

This 2nd headband is reversable. One side is a blue sheer ribbon and the other is a silky pink ribbon. I didnt sew all the way around the two ribbons. I only connected them on the ends where I sewed the elastic.



The 3rd headband is also reversable. One side is the glittery black ribbon and the other side is pink.



These are easy to make and can be jazzed up by adding buttons or flowers sewn on. Or glue on sequins, beads, jewels, feathers, etc.

Braided Scarf

I was reading about braiding yarn and ribbon together to create long scarves. I loved the idea! So I made a few of them. The first has brown ribbon running through it, for a more earthy feel:






I like all the different ways to wear a skinny scarf. It can dress up a sweater and jeans.

I really like the yellow in the second one. Cheery and bright.




The 3rd scarf is just teal and black for a more simple look, but it is slightly thicker than the other two:

Beautiful Paper

I love how these bookmarks turned out…. only one little problem. They are curving up slightly.  While the glue was drying I should have put them under some books. But I left them to dry on the craft table and now they dont lay flat… Well, thats okay, these ones will still work fine for me and my books. Lesson learned.

I received an email with this lovely little pink care bear in it. I decided I would use the image on a card.


The inside reads: Hope Springs Eternal In The Human Heart

Paper Crafts: Handmade Cards

I’ve been sick for the past few days so I havent been blogging or crafting as much. But I’m starting to feel better (figures, tomorrow is Monday!) I did make a few new handmade cards. I really love the new paper I bought, I think the cards are so pretty.

handmade Ariel card. I used special scissors to make a decorative cut

Inside of the Disney Ariel Handmade BDay Card

handmade snow white card. 

The inside has a super cool birthday cake sticker and I stamped Happy Birthday

Handmade Jasmine Card

The inside of card is blank.  This card could be used for birthdays or any occassion really. The paper reads Bon Voyage so I also invision sending this to someone going on a cruise or trip, or sending it from your vacation back home. When I went on vacation to Florida my sisters gave me a card with some spending money (I appreciated that!! lol) this is the type of card that would be good for something like that.  Or really for anyone you care about 🙂



The inside reads: A light heart lives long. This card would be great for a variety of uses.
I luv adding ribbon to almost everything…..
I have a shoe box almost all the way full of handmade cards. lol. But the options are unlimited! I love all the different possibilities. Lately I have been thinking tho, I’m making a lot of girly stuff and nothing for the boys. So next time I do some craft shopping I will have to also take a peak at boy stuff 🙂
