Dance Team Christmas gift






My My, how time flies... I have been crafty, I just haven't posted in a while. My computer has become so slow that it is just agonizing to upload pics, edit and post. Sorry, I will try to do better.
I love making Christmas gifts. This year, for my daughters dance team we decided to make flower hair barrettes in the teams colors. The colors are hot pink, black and zebra striped. FUN RIGHT!!! Grace and I have been making a lot of hair accessories and little flower pins. Actually I have gotten pretty crazy with it.

Anyway, We made pink hair barrettes for the dancers and zebra flower pins for the coaches. Not everyone is like me and is willing to be an adult and wear handmade flowers in their hair. For the buttons in the middle of the flower I covered each one with some zebra fabric and hot glue. I have fallen in LOVE with my hot glue gun again! Actually all of it is held together with hot glue.

Then you have to have pretty packaging right! Any crafter knows a great gift comes in fantastic packaging. We had to make 24 gift bags so we went the easy peasy route and used brown lunch sacks. We dressed them up with the team colors and team. The dance team is called Royalty Athletics hence the crown. Made those babies with my super duper trusty cricut. LOVE!!!

So that's it for today. We can hardly wait til the party next weekend. Speaking of weekend I hope you have a great one! Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!

Cheers!
Julie
