Clippity Clips

Hey y'all!
So last month I made Harper a few hair clips with my June kit.

I've had a few questions about how to make them so I thought I'd share a few tips.

You will need:

1. Glue: I chose to use this glue because I had it handy.
You can also use hot glue, or pretty much any fabric glue.

2. Clippies: I made two different kinds

You can find these at drug stores, grocery stores, and Hobby Lobby.

3. Assortment of ribbons, flowers, buttons, and rubber charms from the June Kit and add-ons.

4. Claw clips to hold ribbon as it is adhering to the clip:

Rubber Charm clips:

Make sure to soak the charms in soap and water first. Or you can use some Goo be Gone...
you don't want these to stay sticky.
Layer them over flowers or simply cover a barrette with ribbon and let the charm be the only embellishment.

Flower Clips:

Use your imagination and layer the flowers and buttons. Pretty easy and self-explanatory.

Fruit Charm Clip:

I cut a piece of ribbon in half length-wise.
I frayed it for a shabby look.
I then threaded the ribbon through the charms and knotted it.
Adhere charms to clip.

So there it is!
Super easy, right?
I thought I'd just post a few specific tips to make it a bit easier.
You can also make a button clip, or simply tie some bows with the pretty Cosmo Cricket ribbons.

Use your imagination...I can't wait to see what you come up with!

Hey, these are awesome! I'm trying to find rubber charms like these, do you remember the manufacturer they came from? The Studio Calico site doesn't have them up anymore.
