Who WEAR's the CROWN!!

Well.. It started like this.. my friend Sandee Setliff tagged me in a post, in regards to crowns made by Jeanette; who is a fellow Helmar DT member.  You can find her post here! After Sandee drafted us.. a bunch of us decided that we also wanted to make the crown!  Below is my process!

This is the first one.. the easiest one to do.. You just had to remove a  few triangular shaped slices from the roll.. Then I painted with my favorite shade of purple, Purple Pearl,  Dazzling Metallics from DECOART.   Then I decorated it with lavender bling mesh, lace, and a gross grain ribbon.  Final picture.. is at the end.. :D

The following pictures make up my other crown.. a slightly different one and a few extra strips..
Step 1) cut a ring from the roll about an inch thick. 
Step2) take the remainder of the roll and cut into 1/2 inch strips or however thick you want them to be.

Step 3) Take one of the strips and line up about 5 of the strips perpendicular to the base strip.  
Step 4) After you have spaced them, adhere them with your favorite adhesive.  Mines just happens to be HELMARs CRAFT/450 Once that is done, connect the base strip to close and form a loop.

Take the strips and curl them downward.. the adhere the tips on the inside of the 1 inch piece you cut at the beginning.  Then you will your second crown to paint and bling it up.. :)
