Heartfelt Creations Products






Other Products Used

Versafine- Olympia Green Ink, Distress- Peeled Paint Ink, Silver Edged sheer ribbon, Silver twine, Elizabeth Craft, Diamond ultrafine glitter, wire, hot glue gun.


Using your Leafy Accents Stamp set, stamp the larger leaf spray and the swirly leaf spray using the Versafine Olympia Green ink, then color using your stack and store daubers with the Distress Peeled Paint. Cut with coordinating die. Turn your leaves over and color the back fully with the Peeled Paint ink.  Lightly spray with your mini mister and shape using your Leafy Accents shaping mold. Using your designer dries white glue highlight the ends of your leaves and apply ultrafine diamond glitter. Allow to dry fully before assembling your headpiece.
Make a circle out of your wire to approximate head size, to measure you can tie a piece of ribbon around your head to gage size, do the same if the headpiece is for a child. Make sure you secure in place. Where the wire joins will become the back of the headpiece and the ribbon will conceal the join. Using your hot glue gun adhere your long pieces of ribbon first and then adhere your sheer bow and then your silver twine bow.


Choose your desired white stamens and cut the stem in half, curl your first stamen around the wire and the overhang run along the wire, put 1 or 2 stamens every inch until you have gone around the entire headpiece. Using your hot glue gun start to adhere the larger plain leaf spray with the stamped side facing inside the headpiece, repeat this until you have filled the center. On the outside of the headpiece adhere the swirly leaf spray with the stamped side facing out.  Until the headpiece is filled. Bend your stamens to the desired positions. You can also spray with a craft lacquer or use glossy accents if you wish the headpiece to be a little stiffer


Happy Crafting
